Soon after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453, Iznik production grew significantly and developed a distinctive style. However, the place of honour at dining tables of discernment was held by Chinese blue and white porcelain and celadon. The response of Iznik potters was to imitate the highly admired blue and white wares of China. The earliest group of Iznik ceramics was in this colour scheme and can be divided into two groups: the first relied on the Nakkashane for designs and metalwork for shapes; the second blue and white group clearly incorporated Chinese motifs.
