Abdulfettah Efendi (d.1896 AD) originally came from Chios, in today's Greece and moved to Istanbul as a slave working for the household Serasker Husrev Pasa. He worked for three sultans: Abdulmecid (r.1839-61), Abdulaziz (r.1861-76) and Abdulhamid II (r.1876-1909), not only as a calligrapher but also as a Head Engraver at the Imperial Mint. He designed inscriptions for several buildings, including the Beylerbeyi Palace, the Imperial Gate at thebTopkapi Palace, and the mausoleum of Sultan Mehmed II. Another tughra by him is now in the collection of Abdul Rahman al-Owais (Derman 2009, p.172-3).
