A fine small Apulian lekanis comprised of a low bowl with two horizontal handles and a broad low foot and a matching lid. The handles are ribbon-shaped. The lid of the lekanis is adorned with female heads, the so-called ladies of fashion (most likely young brides), which are uplifted with white paint and depicted wearing elaborate caps and jewellery. Palmettes fill the spaces between the heads and a border of vertical strokes decorates the rim of the lid. The bottom bowl is plain and executed in black gloss.
