Bronze oinochoe (pitcher)


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 158

The high handle terminates in a beautiful relief of an inverted palmette and lotos rising from acanthus leaves. In the past the piece was severely cleaned of all archaeological corrosion products. It has recently been cosmetically toned with removable pigments.
