Description
The design of this richly patinated vessel appeals to modern aesthetic sensibilities as much as it did to those of the ancient world: it is unquestionably a classic. At the terminal of the curving handle is the winged image of a siren, the bird women who lured sailors with their irresistible song. We too are drawn back again and again to its beauty, as if caught by the siren's eternal charms. - (FZ.003)
