THE HERON CLASS
Etruscan Sub-Geometric pottery group.
REAL or FAKE?
There is something about it that is quite unusual.
Do you see it?
If not take a look again after you have read a bit more. While you read this and look at the photos remember that this article is in the "fakes" section!
The ancient makers of the Heron Class pottery group produced five shapes, these rather gracious plates, kraters, oinochoai, amphorae, and stamnoid ollas like these below.
Here is a pair of Heron class amphora.
One sold at a well known international auction house.
And are these consistent with what we know about the variety of Heron class pottery? One of these above also sold at an international auction house.
And these below ? Same question.
Eva Rystedt, in her article on this type of pottery also mentions a "deep footed bowl". Maybe something like this? (E Rystedt, 'An Etruscan Plate', MedMusB 11 (1976), 50-54))
Are you wondering what I'm getting at?
