Description
The central motif of this charming vessel shows vines with tendrils and fat bunches of grapes hanging down. It may originally have contained fine wine, or some other luxury product like oil or perfume. Its soaring handle and elongated spout give this oinochoe a sculptural elegance. When we hold it today and delight in its elegant shape and intricate patterns, we share our pleasure with people who lived long ago during the flower of the Classical age. - (PF.1258)
