Daunian Double Vessel


Daunian Double Vessel

An ancient Daunian conjoined double vessel, with a central handle and bail handle, the body decorated with parallel bands of geometric patterns, waves, vines and other decorative elements.

Daunia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 3rd century BC.
Height: 8 in. (20.3 cm).

Despite the popularity of Greek and later South-Italian Greek figural pottery, Daunian ware continued in its localized production to the end of the 4th century BC. Daunian ware is more rustic compared to Black-Glazed and Red-Figure ware with which it is contemporary.

Cf. University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, inv. no. MS1590; F.L. Bastet, Pot en Pensel, exhibition catalog, Rijksmuseum van Oudheden te Leiden, 1985, p. 68.

Formerly in the J. S. collection, Pennsylvania; previously in a Washington, D.C. private collection.
