The Painter of Copenhagen 3830 was primarily a painter of alabastra (small jars primarily used to hold perfumed oil). There is a similar red-figure example in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (1919.36) by the same hand: Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum: Oxford, Ashmolean Museum, 1, 33, pl. (133) 41.5-6. For further discussion of the type, see I. Algrain, L'alabastre attique. Origine, forme etusages, Brussels, 2014.
