Apulian Gnathia-Ware Kantharos

 

Apulian Gnathia-Ware Kantharos

An ancient Apulian Greek black glazed Gnathia-ware kantharos with high handles and an applied laurel sprig in red.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 340 - 300 BC.
Height: 4 3/8 in. (11.1 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 an Austrian private collection; subsequently in a New York private collection.
