Bronze Ladle for Measuring Liquid

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 23, 2010 9:46 am

The measure is in the form of a cyathus, a Greek ladle used for serving wine. It was used as a unit for measuring liquids and transferring them from one vessel to another. The handle is currently broken.

The measure has a regular cylindrical shape, free of any decoration, with a rounded part in the middle. The artist cast the cyathus in bronze, a material that was readily available at the time and cheap.
Dimensions: Height 8.5 cm Diameter 4 cm
