This is an extremely rare model of an over-sized tankard, most known examples measuring in the region of twenty to twenty-three centimeters. Derived from a European form typically constructed in leather or carved from wood, the tankard form, or hanap, was produced by the Ottomans in both ceramic and metal.

The decoration corresponds to the 'cypress-tree' design, a term used by Nurhan Atasoy and Julian Raby in their comprehensive work on Iznik pottery (Atasoy and Raby 1989, p.235). It was applied on dishes (see ibid. nos.431-4), bottle vases (see British Museum, London, inv. no.A 1437) and more rarely on tankards such as this one (further comparables with cypress trees are in the British Museum, inv. no.G.59 and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, inv. no.C.1-1950).
