Description:

Like many sixteenth-century Iznik dishes, this one is characterized by the naturalistic depiction of flowers (carnations, tulips), and a palette of green, blue, and red. The rim of the plate features a wave and rock pattern that demonstrates the influence of Chinese art (especially of earlier and contemporary Ming porcelains) on Iznik production.
