Description
The artist has tamed the delicate and graceful patterns of nature--fruits, flowers, leaves and waves--to adorn this exquisite vessel with a controlled but lively hand. Surely those who gripped its handles centuries ago must have delighted as we do in its pleasing shape and flowing decoration. For a moment, we are linked directly to that distant classical afternoon when wine flowed from its depths. - (PF.0285)
