A Very Rare,  Intact  Ancient Pre-Roman,  Messapian Greek Pottery Trozella

 Measures 6 7/8" height, 

The Trozella is one of the most beautiful, elegant and most highly desirable Ancient Greek ceramic shapes.

 High flung angular strap handles, decorated with applied Rotelles, oval body, wide neck, disc base with  

decoration in black and umber paintwork, most of which survives.  

See similar sold at Christies U.K. South Kensington Antiquities Auction of 7 Nov 2001 lot#438

also Sotheby's New York Antiquities Auction of 5 Dec 2007 lot#129.  

 The Messapi inhabited the South-Eastern corner of Italy (the "heel"area) from about the 18th Century B.C. 

They reached the height of their ceramic production about the 5th-6th century, under heavy influence 

from the South Italian Greek Colonials.  

This piece was purchased from a U.K. Ancient Art seller, prior to that was part of a Belgo-German collection.

Certificate of Authenticity included.
