Description: Very elegant oenochoe of the so-called Bucchero Ware. The massive, ovoid corpus stands on a ring base, which is set off by a recessed band. On the upper half of the corpus three-dotted hallmark patterns which possibly serve as floral ornaments. The cloverleaf-shape spout is very elegantly formed, the semi-circular handle starts between two horns on the rim and finishes at the shoulder. For sure from the same workshop like our reference number 4026.
