Xenon ware is a specific type of Apulian pottery, so named after a vase in Frankfurt (Beazley, EVP, p. 219,1.) inscribed with the name: XENON. The type is distinguished by added matt red decoration over black glaze. Miniature vases, perhaps toys or votives, are especially prevalent among this type of pottery.

Formerly in a New York private collection, acquired in the 1990's.
