Description
Even in its restored condition, we can detect the superb workmanship of this black glazed cup. The pottery is eggshell fine, the shape elegantly simple, the glaze the lustrous black associated with the finest attic vase. As we hold the cup in our hands, we cannot help but imagine who might have held it centuries ago. Perhaps it was some tribal king or noble who had trade relations with Athens. As we delight in the aesthetic beauties of this ancient vessel, we share our pleasure with that long-forgotten individual. - (PF.2096)
