Tableware

Vitrina 127
Iberian pottery had a great shape-diversity, it was made with a potter-wheel and when decorated, Iberians used geometric, vegetal and exceptionally, figurative subjects. All of these decorated pieces are an original expression of Iberian artists and artisans.
During the Republic, Roman black-glazed tableware, known as campaniense, came to the Iberian Peninsula. In Imperial times, tableware was varnished with red and, at times, decorated using a mold. This pottery is called 'sigillata' because they sometimes had the potter stamp (sigillum).
