The orange, rather than red colour on this dish indicates that it dates from the earliest years of the use of red at Iznik, a development which is thought to have occurred during the last years of the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent (r.1520-66). At its inception, the red was applied in a thinner manner and hence took on a more orange-red appearance after firing. The foliated rim of this dish features alternating bunches of flowers and paired tulips; two decorative characteristics associated with dishes of the 1560s (see Atasoy and Raby 1989, p.230). A similar dish is now in the Freer Gallery, Washington, inv.no.69.26 (published in ibid., p.229).
