Bucchero Hydria


Description Provenance Credit
Description Large vases like this hydria (water container) were typical offerings in the tombs of prominent Etruscan families. Characteristic of late bucchero ware is the reliance on eastern motifs, including the procession of lions, from the 7th and early 6th centuries BC, known as the Orientalizing period. The decoration was impressed onto the clay using stamps.
Provenance Don Marcello Massarenti Collection, Rome [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1902, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
