Description
The graceful from and restrained linear decoration of this vessel make it as appealing to the modern eye as it no doubt was to the ancient age that created it. Looking at its elegant contours, we do not doubt that its now-vanished contents--probably olive oil or wine--were of the finest quality. Today, its timeless beauty holds only the seductive fragrance of imagination. One whiff sends us traveling backward through time into a mysterious, long- vanished world. - (P.0408)
