Canakkale Plate 19th – Birds Design at the Center

Canakkale 19th - Tiled Kiosk Museum Istanbul Turkey

Canakkale plate dated from the 1st half of 19th century. Red earthenware (usual) with light – yellow glaze, and a fish design at the center.
It was the early 17th century when Canakkale ceramics (souvenirs rather than objects of daily use) became an object of enough interest to caught the attention of foreign travelers.
In Çanakkale the production was mainly plates, bowls, jugs, pitchers and vases (up to now, no wall tiles have been found). Broad 18th century plates with skilful and varied designs, including ships, buildings, ibrik, and simple geometric and plant motives, belong to the finest ceramics ever made in Çanakkale.
