Greek Pottery For Sale

Most of what we know about Greek art comes from the style of their pottery and the pictures they painted on it. Pottery, even if it is found fragmentary can be restored, and a good deal of it has even survived whole. Greek painted pottery styles changed a good deal over time, from the Stone Age to the Hellenistic period.
