Description

The design on our eyeglass case and matching lens cloth is taken from a terracotta situla, a bucket-shaped vase for wine, attributed to the Lycurgus Painter (Greek, South Italian, Apulian, ca. 360340 B.C.). This painted vessel in the Museums collection depicts spirited scenes of the wine-god Dionysos, while on either side is an elaborate palmette, an ornamental motif based on the fan-shaped leaves of the palm tree.
