Why this is a
Masterpiece

This piece is an exceptionally beautiful example of this 16th century production. In the centre of the bowl is a vegetal motif in blue and red on a white background. There are traces of gold under the glaze.

History of the Object
The town Iznik has given its name to this type of fine 16th century ceramic production. The workshops in the city produced great numbers of tile panels for architectural decoration that adorned mosques and public buildings all over the empire. They also produced tableware. Characteristic of this production are the brightly colored vegetal motifs on a white background. The workshops of Iznik succeeded in developing this kind of glaze towards the middle of the 16th century, an apogee that would last until the beginning of the 17th century.
