Description

This elegant pillow adapts the decoration on a 16th-century Turkish dish forged in the renowned Iznik kilns. These illustrious workshops prolifically crafted ceramic wares for the Ottoman court; however, as this particular type of ceramic dish was produced in smaller quantities, it's especially coveted by museums and collectors. This dish is likewise remarkable for its unusual color palette featuring sage green and manganese purple in the peacock (or tavus, in Turkish) form in the center, as well as its use of floral devices, which would soon come to dominate Ottoman art. While the decorations around the rim are derived from Chinese ceramics, the palmette motif and feathery saz leaves are distinctly Iznik designs.
