Ladle


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Ladles in the Classical and Hellenistic periods had handles that rose nearly vertically, as they were used for dipping into deep wine containers, such as "kraters." Ladles were often paired with strainers, and this example's long, strap-like handle ends in the bent neck of a swan, matching the handles of the strainer, with which it was found.
