What Is This Guy?

Recommended Posts

Now this guy has lots of personality. I don't think his origin will be hard to detect but what it is, is the real question. As usual do not use screen shots. I have one other view I will show later.

He looks Greek-Red Figure or Black Figure.

The term is stirrup cup, where a rider was given a drink of wine, while or after riding. The bottom is not flat so you have to set him upside down on his rim, after you have completely drained the cup.

What do I win?

I don't know whether to comment on the business forum or here ... but ... if one wanted to retire off making mugs imagine a line of these ( with the specific Greek Lettering of certain societies ) sold on or near college campuses??? :unsure::lol::rolleyes: The volume off breakage and replacements would be worthwhile too.

Do you mean a rhyton? It really isn't that type of cup, but yes it is a cup. Tom there is nothing to win sorry. It is not a contest or sweepstakes it is just a little thought provoking fun.

It is not a bad idea, but that would require molds and slip for casting and lots of storage space. So get going at it Chris. It was your idea.
