Tall Palmetta vase

The artefact

This terracotta vase is decorated with palmetta (small palm) motifs, in alternating dark and light bands, designed by this artisan drawing on the motif of a ceramic fragment of Oristano dating back to the sixteenth century. Lathe shaped and with slip and glaze decoration, it is part of a distinctive line with the same palmette motif, which counts unique objects with ever-changing style and decorations.
