The designs have been taking from ancient Greece. The krater shows on the one side Achilles battle Hector while Greek Goddess Athena watching. One the other side it is the mythical heroe Heracles with Goddess Nike. Red-figure vase painting is one of the most important styles of figural Greek vase painting. It developed in Athens around 530 BC and remained in use until the late 3rd century BC. It replaced the previously dominant style of Black-figure vase painting within a few decades. Its modern name is based on the figural depictions in red color on a black background, in contrast to the preceding black-figure style with black figures on a red background. It was Hand made in Greece, height is approximately 11 inches, diameter is approximately 11 inches. Our clay items are Hand painted and not fastly made, nor are they cheaply made of substitute materials such as resin. We stick to the materials and methods used by ancient Greeks and use only top quality ceramics and paints. Do not expect "perfection" as if these clay vases was not mass produced from a machine like many are, but by hand.
