Tall Etruscan Bucchero Trefoil Oinochoe

Italy, Etruscan culture, ca. late 7th century BCE. A beautifully formed oinochoe, or pouring vessel, with a strap handle joining rim to shoulder and a gently folded, trefoil spout. The voluminous body is supported by a round concave foot. Bucchero is a specifically Etruscan style for firing pottery which results in a smooth, shiny black finish. This type of jug may have been made specifically to be buried with offerings, as was often the case for such fine Etruscan pottery. Size: 5.85" W x 8.8" H (14.9 cm x 22.4 cm)

Condition: Handle has been repaired. Repair is well done and almost invisible. Otherwise in nice condition. Faint sheen of iridescence on surface.

Provenance: ex-private Chicago, Illinois, USA collection, acquired from H. J. Berk
