51.7.13 The mouth is black at the top of the interior and the lip is reserved; the handles are black as is the body where they are attached, and the foot, except for the underside. The neck is decorated with a six-leaf palmette on each side. On the shoulder, beneath two reserved bands, are tongues that suggest the effect of ribbing. A white fillet has been painted over the 'ribbing' on both sides. Two thick, black lines (carelessly rendered) encircle the shoulder. A large palmette fills the space beneath each handle. A female head, shown in profile to the left, is shown on each side. Each women wear a kekryphylon or kalyptra and has her hair tied in a knot. Strands of added white (ribbons?) emerge from the hair. There are also thin lines (carelessly rendered) beneath the main scenes. Beneath the main scenes the vessel is black, except for the reserved stem and underside. The stem and the resting surface have been treated with a darker red wash. Red sections are streaky and dull, and some of the 'black' became red through misfiring. 2003.95.0062.jpg
