Iznik 16th c. – KL Islamic Museum Malaysia

Iznik 16th - Malaysia Museum
Animals are first depicted on Iznik fritware in 1520s and 1530s with the finest creatures to be those on the Sunnet Odasi tiles.They rarely occur in the 1540s and 1550s with the exception of a peacock dish in the Louvre Museum and a unique two handled flask with chasing animals, that both represent the two major trends of later animal wares (IZNIK, The pottery of Ottoman Turkey, Arthur Lane 1989). The beautiful plate in the photo from the Islamic Museum in Malaysia is an example from near 1575.
