Description: Large Etruscan dish of the so-called Red Ware on a high, far protruding foot ring. The inside is decorated with deeply ribbed, concentric circles. The wall is steep and merges into an abundantly decorated rim. Three finely drawn, encircling indentations followed by engraved zig-zag decoration. In same intervals four jagged handle spaces form the finales. The rare dish belongs to the early phase of orientalisation of Etruscan ceramics.
