Item:372607302489Ottoman Empire 17th Century Famille Verte Design Iznik Production Taza Form Bowl Rare, beautiful and detailed 17th century famille verte design taza form bowl produced at Iznik in North Western Turkey during the Ottoman Empire. Iznik was the chief ceramic production center for ceramic vessels in the Ottoman Empire. Iznik imitated Chinese porcelains making the vessels with earthenware bodies and decorating them with turquoise blue, purple, a range of greens and a characteristic tomato red. This earthenware vessel is a near perfect imitation of a Chinese famille verte early Qing Dynasty taza footed bowl. The bowl interior is decorated in flower panels around a center medallion design. The rim is scrolling wind designs. The foot and bowl underside are also decorated with flower panel designs. A truly amazing piece and quite rare. This piece is in great condition being 400 years old and with no cracks or hairlines. The piece does have rim chips and the bowl interior shows wear. Don’t expect perfection old an old Ottoman Empire piece. It is simply amazing it is even intact. Please study the photographs, they are part of the description. This is a notable piece being an outstanding example from an historic ceramic production center for the Ottoman Empire. Should be in a museum.
