Red figure plate depicting a couple in an amorous embrace.

One-of-a-kind, from Thetis cabinet 

This ceramic plate showcases a finely detailed red figure portrayal of an affectionate couple, meticulously crafted in May 2005. It is a distinguished creation produced exclusively for a private collector in Scotland. The intricate design draws inspiration from a red figure Attic kylix, dating back to the mid-5th century BCE, exhibited at the National Museum of Athens. This piece stands as a testament to historical artistry, offering a unique and historically resonant addition to any collection.
