Apulian Net Bottle


Apulian Net Bottle

An ancient Apulian Greek bottle with black glaze overlaid with a white crossed-net pattern on the body, and a band of red spiral meander on the shoulder.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, South Eastern Italy.
Ca. 4th century BC.
Height: 5 1/4 in. (13 cm).

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 the collection of Jerome Eisenberg, New York.
