Underglazed painted fritware
In Turkey, underglaze-painted pottery, produced for the Ottoman court and wealthy patrons, is renowned for its unique style of motifs and colours, once again widely admired in Europe. Mostly fashioned into dishes, bowls and drinking vessels, these Iznik wares were another major influence on Western ceramic production. This Iznik dish with composite floral motifs is painted in underglaze cobalt blue, sage green, manganese and outlined in black is dated AD c. 1540.
