Etruscan Grey Bucchero Oinochoe, 600-575 BC

Large Etruscan oinochoe of oval body. The flared neck pinched to form a trefoil shaped mouth.
The cylindrical handle spans from rim to shoulder. Standing on a splayed foot.

Rasmussen's oinochoe type 6a. The absence of a ridge at the junction between neck and shoulder and the lack of decoration gives this group a very plain appearance.

For a related example, cf. Beazley Archive vase no. 9012079.

Small hole on the belly mended. Otherwise intact and nice. Minor surface wear.

H. 23 cm (9 in)

Ex US private collection since the early 20th century.
