Description

Our elegant watch motif is adapted from the vibrant foliage and flowers on an original eighteenth-century plate in the collection. The glazed earthenware plate was created in India during the Ottoman period (ca. 12991922), with painted designs in rich tones of deep blue, turquoise, and white. At its height, the Ottoman Empire spread from Anatolia and the Caucasus into Syria, Arabia, and Iraq, and across much of North Africa. Ceramic vessels and tiles reached a peak of excellence during this period, with decorative flowering plant motifs especially popular.
