Description

This olpe is completely intact. The small rounded base plays host to the larger body. A bowl-like shape is allocated to the spout, and the handle is nearly circular. Spout and body are segmented by an outlining comprised of a light elevation over the surface of the olpe.

The piece is primarily black glazed with grey and brown paints detailing it. A fine grape and ivy-vine decoration garnishes the neck and grey paint is used to define the base.
