    This dish has the distinction of having been in three noteworthy collections. Although there are a handful of vessels and tiles of the early 16th Century from Iznik incorporating animal and bird motifs, it was not until the 1560s that the wares known as "animal style" were made. Marian Wenzel has identified silver vessels of the 14th to 16th Centuries produced in Serbia, Bosnia and Ragusa that provided the prototypes for this group of wares, a number of which with an Ottoman tughra of the 16th Century (Marian Wenzel, "Early Ottoman Silver and Iznik Pottery Designs: Animal Style", in Apollo, CXXX, London, September 1989).
