Carinated Bowls (Form 29) from Lezoux

  • Felix Oswald


So little is known of the importation into Britain of carinated bowls (form 29) made by Lezoux potters that the examples illustrated on the accompanying plates may enable their work to be more readily recognised. These specimens (with the exception of fig. 13, nos. 2, 8 and 9, in the St. Germain Museum) were obtained by me some years ago during a visit to Lezoux, when, by the kindness of Madame Plicque, the widow of Dr. A. Plicque, I was able to acquire the remainder of his collection, which was excavated by him about forty years ago, and the bulk of which is now in the St. Germain Museum.

1 Reference may also be made to fragments of form 29 (some in the style of ATEPOMARVS) from Lezoux, now in the Plicque collection at St. Germain Museum, which have been figured by Curle (PSA Scot. 1917, 130) several of which are in the style of ATEPOMARVS.

4 The upper frieze of fig. no. 5 has already been figured by Déchelette (op. cit. fig. 103), but my specimen is more complete and supplies the lower frieze, which is occupied by peculiar ornaments rather suggestive of candlesticks.

5 Gray, H. St. George, Archaeologia lxxx, 1930, fig. 2, P 33 and 38 in inner ditch.

6 The lower frieze has been already figured by Pryce, T. Davies and Oswald, F., Archaeologia lxxviii, 93, no. 59.
