This colourful tableau of eight wall tiles must have had a stunning effect in its original setting. The composition is made up of blossoming cherry branches, tulips and carnations which encircle alternating cartouches (motives in the shape of a shield). During the Ottoman period, high-quality ceramic was produced in the famous Turkish pottery centres such as Irnik and Kütahya; the output included domestic utensils (dishes, jugs etc.) and mainly wall tiles that found their way into the palaces of the sultans and also into the homes of clients outside the Ottoman Empire.
