Description
Ancient Etruscan terracotta brazier with incredible art consisting of very finely detailed friezes of hunting scenes. One frieze runs inside and one runs along the top of the rim. The photos do not do justice to the intricate details. A Thermolumiscent Testing Certificate dating from 1996 accompanies the piece. The test estimated that the firing occurred 2760 +/- 450 years ago.
