Apulian Gnathia Ware Kantharos

 

Apulian Gnathia Ware Kantharos

A large ancient Apulian Greek Gnathia Ware kantharos with ribbed body, two knotted double handles, and vine around neck in yellow paint, with white highlights and reserve band around the foot.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 350 - 300 BC.
Height: 6 1/2 in. (16.6 cm).
Intact.

The output and quality of the Greek colonial potters working in Apulia increased greatly following the Peloponnesian War when Attic exports fell off sharply. Apulian craftsmanship is an amalgamation of the Ionian (Athenian, Attic) conventions, and Doric (western colonial Greek) styles, with a noticeable native Italian aesthetic.

Formerly in a Japanese private collection, acquired in the 1970s; subsequently in the collection of Jerome Eisenberg, New York.
