For a long time, liquids and bulk goods such as fish sauce, olive oil and wine were stored in amphorae for (long-distance) transport. They were large, robust and thick-walled containers with a narrow neck, vertically placed ears and a narrow or no foot. They could be efficiently stacked on transport ships, among other things. They were frequent in ancient times, such as with the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans. Later on, amphorae continued to be used. For example, we know the typical Bador amphorae from the Middle Ages. After amphorae lost their original packaging function, they were reused locally.


In our shop you will find amphorae that can be used in the interior, for example with flowers, but also as decoration for the garden.
