Description:

In the late fifteenth century, Iznik potters developed a distinct ceramic tradition known as Iznik ware, in which a stonepaste vessel was coated in a slip (thinned siliceous clay), painted in polychromatic glazes and additional slips, and covered with a transparent glaze. The entire surface of this Iznik vessel is covered in a fish-scale pattern; the rim features a wave and rock pattern inspired by Chinese models. The reverse is plain with a short, white glazed foot.
