COUPLE OF ETRUSCAN BUCCHERO OINOCHOAI 
ca. 550 BC 
height cm 30 and 31 

Molded in bucchero "pesante", these two oinochoai have ovoid body, trefoil mouth, two plastic rotelles on the rim, a disc-shaped foot and handle stretching from the rim to the shoulder; both decorated with a frieze of three lions in fascinating archaic style, alternating by tongues in relief. A specimen from the same workshop was in Christie's on 5 Jul 2017, lot 57.
Both Restored.

Provenance. Private collection, London; acquired on the art market prior to 1990.
