Apulian Red-Figure Owl Skyphos

 

Apulian Red-Figure Owl Skyphos

An ancient Apulian Greek red-figure miniature skyphos decorated with an owl between leaves on each side.

Ca. 4th century BC.
Apulia, Magna Graecia, South Eastern Italy.
Width: 5 1/4 in. (13 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 New York private collection, acquired in London in the 1970s or earlier.
