Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Collection of the late Dr. Antonios S. Maillis (1951-2009).

    Iznik dishes depicting human figures are rare. They probably began to be produced in the early part of the 17th Century, inspired by an Album compiled by Kalenda Pasa for Ahmed I (1603-1617) depicting Ottoman court and domestic figures. For further figurative examples see N. Atasoy & J. Raby, Iznik, The Pottery of Ottoman Turkey, London 1989, nos. 666-669.
