our current collection

Ancient Greek vases are one of our most important sources for understanding ancient Greek culture, history, everyday life, mythology and iconography. Our core collection consists of a variety of vases, all made for us in Greece, and representing the Minoan period, the geometric and Corinthian styles, the black and red figure techniques and the white ground technique.

Our larger scale specialist vases, many or which are replicas of pieces in museums across the world, are special order pieces.  They take at least six weeks to make, paint and arrive with us in London to be checked and packed to send on to you.  We supplied a selection of these larger vases to motion pictures 'Alexander' and 'Troy' and to documentaries about ancient Greek pottery and vase-painting.
