Canakkale Plates with Ships & House Motifs


Canakkale plates dated from the 1st half of 19th century. Red earthenware (usual) with light – yellow glaze, with rare (ships, houses) motifs 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. Beautiful and rare examples from the Tiled Kiosk Museum in Istanbul Turkey.
