Shown here is an extraordinary Amphora bat vase that will be included in the auction. This 10” tall example of Amphora artistry features a bat with outstretched wings and tail rounding the sides of the vase. It has a raised Amphora circular mark with remnants of a paper Amphora label still present. This extremely rare design is illustrated in Monsters and Maidens by Byron Vreeland on page 352.
In mint condition, the pre-auction estimate for this piece is $8,000-$14,000.
