I'm interested in buying this or a similar item

Black glaze neck-amphora of the Nikosthenic type, ca. 525-520 BCE. Based on an Attic prototype found in Cerveteri, Etruria from the Louvre Museum Collection (amphore F114). 

Nikosthenic amphora is a type of Attic vase invented in the late 6th century BC by the potter Nikosthenes, aimed specifically for export to Etruria. Inspired by Etruscan Bucchero types, it is the characteristic product of the Nikosthenes-Pamphaios workshop.
