Catalogue Note

The present lot belongs to a group of Ottoman luxury objects decorated in polychrome enamelling, a technique that flourished in Turkey in the eighteenth century. They were produced in workshops located near the Suleymaniye mosque in Istanbul and for that reason are known as ‘Suleymaniye-wares’ (Istanbul 1995, p.102-3). These objects reflect a growing desire in higher Ottoman social circles to own and emulate European tableware. An Ottoman enamelled dish with almost identical decoration was sold in these rooms, 3 October 2012, lot 258.
