45.3.1 Szilágyi 1998, 629/34: incised details on birds, particularly 'collars' on necks, are comparable, e.g. to those on Milan, Raccolte Archeologiche A. 1525 (Szilágyi 1998, 628/23). 2003.97.0266.jpg
50.10.1 Coldstream 78.16. He further explains (79) that dogs are typical of this workshop. 2003.95.0091.jpg
51.7.5 A.C. Smith. The squat lekythos, albeit one with broader proportions, is favored by the painters in the Cleveland Group. Further this vase indicates other characteristics of the work attributed to that group: columnar drapery on standing women, beaded sphendone and jewellery, and white, blobby rocks used as seats or supports. The treatment of subsidiary ornament and the palmette under the handle are also similar, although the Cleveland Group preferred the 1 1/2 superimposed palmettes on such squat lekythoi. For a similar single palmette and other related decoration see also 26/68b and other works by the closely related Group of the Trieste Askoi, which, like the Reading squat lekythos, are plain beneath the main zone (whereas the Cleveland Group usually includes a wave band beneath the main zone). 2008.99.0557.jpg
REDMG:1934.53.4 A.C. Smith. Shirley Schwarz, 'The Pattern Class Vases of the 'Gruppo di Orvieto' in the U.S. National Museum Collection, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.' StEtr 47 (1979) 75-80 publishes 17 examples of this class, none of which, however, are decorated with the 'z'. That pattern does, however, appear on chalices in the same group: see Schwarz 1979, 72 fig. 2d. 2004.99.0437.jpg
REDMG:1951.144.1 McPhee and Trendall 1987, IVA/118, 127-28: The cuttlefish, with body outlined in white and decorated with black horizontal stripes, two large black eyes, and a cluster of tentacles (some white), is typical of a particular painter denoted by the Group of Karlsruhe 66/140. Further characteristics of this Group evidenced on the Reading plate are the bream's pectoral fin, which takes the form of an open fan with vertical cross-strokes; and the use of a mussel as filler; the decoration of the central depression with a rosette of the 'ice cream cone' type, surrounded by a wave border; the laurel wreath on the overhanging rim. 2005.99.0120.jpg
REDMG:1951.147.1 A.C. Smith prefers to attribute this vase to the Zaandam Group or one the other workshops of the Iliupersis Painter and the followers of the Hoppin Painter, who specialised in small, plain style pots. For comparanda in the Zaandam Group, 'closely connected' to the work of the Zaandam Painter (according to Cambitoglou and Trendall, RVAp 1.289) see Adolphseck 175-176 (RVAp 11/30-31) and Once London Market, Folio Fine Art (RVAp 1.32). I. McPhee prefers the Liverpool Group: for shape and ornament cf. Naples 669 (RVAp 2, 21/355a) and Wellcome R 1936.324 (RVAp 2, 21/372a) but figures are more akin to the latter, which is classed in group (iv). The white ivy wreath, with incised stems, on the body, is particularly common in this group, and especially well preserved on Dresden H 4. 29/90 (RVAp 2, 21/369). 2005.99.0048.jpg
