"Skyphos" with Animal Scenes


Description Provenance Credit
Description Corinthian pottery of the 7th and the early 6th century BC was typically made from light yellow or white clay decorated with black, white, and red glazes. This unusually large cup, called a "skyphos," was used as a wine vessel. The animal frieze contains a goat, a goose, and two panthers with elongated bodies. The fact that all areas of the design are filled- in this case with rosettes- is typical of the Orientalizing style of this period.
Provenance Private collection; Walters Art Museum, 1950, by gift.
Credit Anonymous gift, 1950
