The traditional Iznik pottery was produced between 1490 and 1700 and was initially influenced by Chinese porcelain with its cobalt-blue coloration, to which later other colors such as turquoise, emerald green and bright purple were added from the 16th century onwards. The painting is executed in underglaze in the shades bole red, cobalt blue and green with black contours. The décor is a Quatre Fleur motif of cloves, tulips, hyacinths and peonies. The mirror adorns a leafy tuft with floral spray, including two large saz leaves. The flag is adorned by abstracted cloud bands. Reverse are small scattered flowers. In the base ring are two holes (new) for the mount. The bowl is 34.5 cm in diameter.
