Compare with one sold for rather more at Christies.

This piece is fairly unusually totally intact, not recomposed from fragments as is so often the case.

The female to the right, looking back, wears a chiton and holds a tambourine and a patera.

Totally intact: some spots of lime accretion which can be removed.
