Description: **Originally listed for 100.

Ancient Greece, Magna Graecia, ca. 4th to 3rd century CE. A lovely, miniature pottery head from a Tanagra type female figure, depicting a fashionable, mortal woman or female character from the New Comedy of Menander, as this was the emphasis of Tanagras as opposed to depicting gods and goddesses, with an intricately delineated coiffure comprised of hair arranged in multiple sections, perhaps braided, and drawn back to the nape of her neck. She presents a tranquil expression comprised of almond-shaped eyes, a straight nose, and pursed lips. Black, wood block mount. Size: head measures 1.25" W x 1.375" H (3.2 cm x 3.5 cm); 2.5" H (6.4 cm) on mount
