Description
The Mycenaean empire was one of the most powerful known to antiquity, with a vast trading network that spread throughout the Mediterranean. The swift Mycenaean fleet carried a vast variety of goods to every port from Egypt to Athens. Mycenaean pottery, light and graceful, set the standard for luxury. This superb spouted vessel certainly shows that fame to be justified. Most likely it held a high grade of olive oil destined for an aristocratic table. The vessel itself is a work of art, delightful to the eye and pleasing to the touch. The pleasure we take in its beauty we share with others who lived centuries ago. - (PF.1994)
