Greek Teano Ware Painted Plate

Magna Graecia, Southern Italy, Campania, Teano Ware, ca. 340 to 320 BCE. A wheel thrown pedestaled Teano Ware vessel, the bowl/cup receptacle with a flat rim, and supported by a concave rounded foot with a decorative everted ridge. The rim is beautifully adorned with incised flowering vines, the blooms delineated in added white pigment. Teano ware is a genre of ceramics created in the last quarter of the 4th century BCE to the first half of the 3rd century BCE and named for the ancient Teanum Sidicinum, the primary site in northern Campania where they were found, most likely their main center of production. Black is the primary color with added white pigment used for the painted decoration. This vessel also shows an incised central flower on the tondo as well as fine red miltos used to highlight the incised grooves. This form is a typical example of Teano ware in its shape and decoration, most likely used for votive or funerary purposes. Size: 4.875" W x 2.375" H (12.4 cm x 6 cm)

Condition: One section reattached to rim. Fissure and possible repair to foot. Expected surface wear. Surface shows areas of nice iridescence and deposits on underside of foot.
