The Beauty of Canakkale Plates

Canakkale plates (tabak), all with red earthenware dated to the late 18th or beginning of the 19th century. Deep dishes with flat everted rim, narrowing to a ring base. At the centre of the dishes, we see composition of free brush strokes arranging forms as the wheel of fortune or stylized floral motives.
