Unusually Large Canosan Volute Krater Magna Graecia Apulia Ca. 350 B.C.

Size: 40-1/4”H. without base.

Description: A monumental, red-figure painted, pottery vessel having a bulbous base, tapered neck and flared rim with flat edge, flanked on opposing sides by projecting volutes, each adorned with a relief maskette of a lady. Along the volute supports are additional maskettes and dolphins in relief. A graceful, modeled swan head behind each, on the shoulder. Neck is ornamented by a painted meandering Greek key design above wisps of vine and tendril design. The main body shows the deceased at center within a naiskos, nude, seated and holding a staff. Four winged beings surround the naiskos; two Nikes at top. Left one holds an actor’s mask, right Nike holds a wreath and staff. Below are two erotes holding offerings, left stands by an open, small chest. All extend their offerings to the deceased. Reverse: Nike at top right, eros at left, each holding a phiale towards central altar. Beneath is Nike at right holding a situla, and eros at left left holding a tambourine; rosettes in the field. Beneath the handles are palmettes, spiraled vines and rosettes as filler. At the base is a smaller band of Greek key geometrics. Separate base has been reconstructed and restored and cannot support the full weight of the krater any longer. Krater has been reconstructed from large fragments with few areas of fill, but has been restored over the break lines and repainted in those areas. An impressive piece of epic proportions. Custom base.

Provenance: Private NYC collection, acquired early 1980s.

Guaranteed Authenticity.
