Black, white, and brown handmade and handpainted vase in the shape of a classic greek urn. On each side of the neck are small decorated handles, and the neck itself is covered with classical greek designs. The front shows two ancient greek figures, a man playing the pan flute to a woman wrapped in animal skins and wearing head coverving. On the back is a large floral-like design in white. On the botton of the vase is stamped "Greek Art" "G Maras CO" "Athens".
Donated by Angeline Kringas along with two other handpainted vases, a needle point astray and handpainted salt shaker. The ceramics appear to be made by the G Maras Co Athens in Greece which produced Neoclassical handpainted greek art.
