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 young (Hector) arming with the help of his parents (Hekabe and Priam). The youthful mother holds the spear and the helmet and in front of her is the shield, leaning against nothing, while the old father stands well wrapped up, giving good advice with raised forefinger. The young man is carefully adjusting his armor.The reverse side shows the naked figures of three revellers in lively motion.End of the 6th cent. B.C. Munich Museum, Germany.

We take extra care in safely packing our pottery items to ensure safe delivery anywhere in the world. All shipments are insured.
