Timeless are pleased to offer a Zoomorphic Ewer Spout and a pair of Ceramic Domed Vessel Stoppers dating from the 5th - 2nd Century B.C.E.
Fired in Ancient Greece well over two millennia ago, the ceramic ewer spout has been formed in the shape of a wolf, while the stoppers once belonged to storage urns and display pierced knops.
While there are dozens of categories of Ancient Greek pottery vessels, it's likely that the spout once belonged to a 'Askos' - flat topped containers used to pour small quantities of liquid such as oil.
Mounted on an oak plinth at 25cm in length, now available in the Timeless Galleries
