Of the painted Iberian ceramics, it is worth pointing out a type of product decorated with white paint. Vases are the most common pieces with this type of decoration. The main decorative motifs are geometrical and plant-like and can chiefly be found towards the top of the decorated piece. Relatively few of them can be found at sites in the north-eastern peninsula.
