Ex-collection Édouard Aynard, France (1837-1913).
Lyon, Hotel des Ventes des Tuiliers, 6 November 1991, lot 5.

Aynard was a notable patron of the arts, and a founding member of the Historical Museum of Fabrics of Lyon and the School of Commerce and Weaving. With a particular interest in Islamic art, he enriched the collections of the Museum of Lyon through generous donations, as well as chairing the commission of acquisitions and the board of directors. In 1913, he became an honorary member of the National Society of Fine Arts.

Characteristic of the second half of the sixteenth century, the present dish belongs to a rare group with motifs based on Chinese Jiajing design, after a dynasty that ruled from 1522-66 (Atasoy & Raby 1994, p.245, figs.471-476). Pertinent to debates surrounding reciprocal influences between China and the Islamic Middle East, the ‘wave and rock’ motif is one of the most popular and pervasive Chinese decorative trends seen in Iznik wares. Two further dishes from this group can be found in the Barlow Collection and in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (inv. no. 19.1189). For a similar central decoration see O. Aslanapa, The Iznik Kiln Tile Excavation, Ankara, 1989, pp.87-220.
