   PA-2787 - Ancient Greek Bell Krater - circa mid 4th century BC


PA-2787 - (Height:  11 1/8 inches; Width:  11 7/8 inches)  Magna Graecia (Apulia), c. 350 BC: A lovely red-figure painted pottery wine mixing bowl standing on a graceful pedestal foot which supports the bell shaped body, having two opposing handles beneath the flared, wide rim. The main scene shows a standing nude male, holding a palm frond in his lowered right hand, his left holding a patera, extended towards a maiden walking towards him. She holds a kantharos (wine cup) in her right hand and a tambourine in her left and is clad in a draped garment. Stylized floral elements in the field, Greek key pattern under the scene. Reverse decorated with two standing toga clad youthful men, one with a staff, short altar between. Greek key border below, and laurel leaf border under the rim. Kraters would be used for mixing water and wine during a Greek banquet or meal. Areas of surface encrustation, especially under the rim. A minor, stable, in-manufacture firing hairline between the base of the bowl and pedestal. A beautiful example in excellent condition without repairs or overpainting!

Provenance: Eugenie Propp collection, NYC, acquired 1960s, formerly collection of Cedric H. Marks. Propp (1922-2009), well-known artist and wife of Mortimer Propp, philanthropist.
