  • Young Woman with a Torch and a Vase, ca. 1770–90
    Giovanni Pichler (Italian, 1734–1791)
    Rome
    Sardonyx; mounted in gold as a ring; 15/16 x 1/2 in. (24 x 13 mm)
    Signed in Greek: ΠIXΔEP
    The Milton Weil Collection, 1939 (39.22.42)

    The vessel, improbably slung by one handle over the top of the maiden's arm, is superbly delineated in the tawny top stratum. This, one of Pichler's choicest assimilations of Hellenistic style, would alone justify the high repute he enjoyed among his contemporaries.
