8. Kutahya Plate – Vendor of Liver
The oldest dated (1718/9) Kutahya tiles, are a special order for the restoration of the church of the Holy Sepulcher within the Old City of Jerusalem (also called the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians). These pictorial tiles depict a series of scenes from the Old and New Testament with an inscription in Armenian.
