Museo dei Brettii – Sala II – Showcase 4 – Upper shelf

Achromatic plate with moulded rim, elongating slightly outward against the wall. Oblique profile of the bowl. Ring-shaped foot connected to the bowl through a small transition. On the inside: clay matrix bunch of grapes consisting of circular and small size fragmentary grapes, resting on the plate itself. On the rim: two through holes for suspension, with 4 cm of distance from each other (hole diameter 0.5 cm). Such reproductions of agricultural products were common in the whole Italic area, since these objects have been found in different tombs in the Magna Graecia dating back to the second half of the IV century BC.
