Kutahya Pitcher – 2nd half of 18th c.
Beautiful Kutahya Pitcher (Turkey -2nd half of the 18th century). Plain rim with long neck and bulbous body in transparent glaze and decoration in yellow, cobalt blue, manganese purple and brownish red colors. A pair figures, one wearing a turban and the other with a priest’s hat, embracing each other.
Armenian pottery in Kutahya dates back to the early 16th century, when inscribed vessels in Armenian language indicate a production of ceramic ware similar to that of Iznik. Kutahya pottery reached its peak in the 18th century, when the Iznik workshops had closed down, and the orders for the tiling of the mosques and churches were directed to the Armenian ceramists.
