Description Fragmentary bucchero cup. The side walls rise up in a steep curve. The rim flares out slightly. The side walls are fluted; profound ridges which separated each flute are visible on the interior. The handle consists of two parts. The straight interior section is joined to cup at the rim and is in the form of a molded, winged woman, viewed frontally from the waist up. The wings originate at the waist and extend up to the neck, gradually widening; at the head, they taper and curl inwards, leaving a triangular cut-out area between the hair and wings. The hair, parted in the middle, frames the face and forms two long tresses with a vertical groove down teh center of each. These tresses extend to the waist. The arms extend from the lateral edges, bent at the elbows, and each hand, whose fingers are rendered by four incisions, clutches a tress. The head is higher relief than the rest of the body and shows two almond-shaped eyes, a long, pointed nose, thick lips, and a heavy chin. Two horizontal incisions mark the join of the handle to the rim on the interior. The exterior curved section of the handle would have joined at the top, for there are attachment scars behind the top break of each handle section. The exterior section joins the vase about half way up the side walls. It is a simple strap handle, tapering in the middle and ornamented with a finger depression above.
