Description
The artisan who made this jug in the classical age combined practical function with graceful beauty to create a vessel that has stood the test of time. In this world of technical wonders, the simple yet pleasing elegance of this piece could hardly be improved upon. The person who poured wine from its mouth so long ago must have loved its flowing contours, the way it felt to the touch. To hold it today is to share those feelings with a person who lived centuries ago. - (PF.0194)
