Shallow Bowl with Three Friezes of Rosettes (Main View, 3/4 from above)

Unknown

The J. Paul Getty Museum

The J. Paul Getty Museum
Los Angeles, United States

The shallow bowl is raised from a single sheet of silver and is parcel-gilt. The exterior is undecorated. It has an incised interior; gilded rosettes or blossoms arranged in three friezes set apart by wheel-cut grooves. A garnet decorates the center of the bowl.
The green oxidation pattern on the spout of the rhyton 86.AM.754.1 conforms to the shape of this bowl, suggesting that it was buried with the bowl lying upside down on top of it.
