Plates of various sizes and styles were the most commonly produced artifacts during the 15th-17th century pottery production in Anatolia. The wide flat surface of plates provide the artists with the room to explore and express different figures, patterns and color combinations, making plates a favorite medium of contemporary “çini” artists just like their predecessors centuries ago. This plate displays a new arrangement by Mehmet Gürsoy of original Iznik floral motifs in the saz style which was introduced into the Ottoman art in the second half of the 16th century. The style is characterized by extravagant representations of foliage with two prominent figures: long, serrated leaves shaped like daggers and fleshy, round rosettes.
