Turkey is famous for its ceramics which have been produced there for thousands of years. Iznik, located in western Turkey, is famous for the pottery produced there during the late 15th to 17th centuries. The Ottoman court in Istanbul favored Chinese blue-and-white ceramics, and the Iznik artisans combined those patterns with traditional Mughal designs. The tiles reproduced on this box depict prunus blossoms, tulip-spined saz leaves and other flowers and leaves.
