A Classic Greek Column-Krater Vase
A 19th century Classic Corinthian Greek Column-Krater vase, a high-quality “Grand Tour” replica souvenir, originally used for storing a drink made up of wine and water, decorated with black on white mythological and stylised animal motifs, and with 'Antefissa' heads on the handles. This jug was made with an amazingly close resemblance to an 2,000 year old original, in order to satisfy the ‘English Lord’ type of 19th century Grand Tour tourist, hungry for Classic souvenirs to display back home. Italy, circa 1860.
