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
