This object qualifies for free and fast worldwide shipping.
Painted pottery was produced in many regions of East Greece, such as North and South Ionia, Aioris, Samos, and Chios, and represents the most elaborate example of East Greek vase painting during the Orientalizing phase of the Archaic period. The decoration employs an outline technique with figures that are freer in posture and composition and more elegant. In this example, the fragmentary body is decorated in umber on buff in two registers separated by broad stripes of dark paint with a frieze of grazing wild goats with high curving horns, and infilling motifs including dotted rosettes and semicircles. The lower part of the vessel is steadily occupied by a band of rays interspersed with small stars.
