Description
Having survived ages of time, this delicate dark blue glass trefoil oinochoe radiates with its brilliant colors and skillful artistry. The bright yellow and light turquoise decoration on deep blue seems to sparkle. The vessel is core-formed in an ovoid shape, with a cylindrical neck and flaring mouth. A single arched handle is attached to the shoulder and neck. The ribbed body is decorated in an opaque turquoise and yellow trailing, combed into a zigzag pattern with horizontal lines, above and below. The slim neck is encircled with opaque yellow trailing, and the rim is also edged with yellow. What kind of rare or aromatic potion could this colorful oinochoe have contained so long ago? In whose gentle hands could it have been treasured? Only ancient time and history hold answers to such questions. But we do know that this delicate oinochoe was treasured and cared for, and it is certain that its beauty and history will be valued for times to come. - (GF.0334)
