Greek Rhyton Ram Head
Great Deals Webstore
Here is a beautiful handcrafted and hand painted vintage Greek Rhyton Ram Head mug that was produced by Keramikos in Athens Greece. The Rhyton mugs were special drinking vessels and the word Rhyton in Greece means “bottoms-up.” This is a replica of the original Greek Rhyton mug from 450 B.C. This replica was made in the early 1960’s. This beautiful collectors piece in many ways represent a time in history. One of the papers is the original package label that came with the mug and the other paper is a little bit of the history of the Rhyton mug that someone typed up. With my experience in antiques, the two pieces of papers themselves are old, no question about it. It is in mint condition with no cracks, chips, fleabites, repairs, or stains. A mug like this one sold at an auction for $185.00 and it had many chips on it, however, I do not know the age of that Rhyton mug and without knowing that information, I have place a lower price on this Rhyton mug.
