Our Greek pottery items are handmade in Greece in a small family workshop using natural quality materials, superb craftsmanship and attention to detail. They are licensed and modeled after museum pieces from all over the world and bear the lead seal of authenticity.

This amphora features a realistic dolphin covering most of its surface and delicate marine motives. Probably most of these large amphorae were made for the transport and storage of wine, though many were used for oil, preserved fish, pitch and other liquid substances, including water.About 1500 B.C., Archaelogical Museum of Heraklion, Greece.
