Object Description

A fine Cypriot red burnished bottle decorated with incised geometric motifs accentuated with white pigment. The vessel features a globular body with a rounded base, which rises and tapers into an elongated cylindrical neck. A large outsplayed mouth is displayed at the top, ending with a flat everted rim. The neck is enriched with an alternating pattern of incised chequered squares and vertical chevron. The main register, presented across the shoulder of the body, is decorated with three striped lozenges. Both the neck and body motifs are bordered by horizontal undulating lines that band the vessel. Earthly encrustation to the surface, some traces of firing can be seen across the bottle.

The stand is for reference only.
