Tile panel

This framed panel of twenty-one earthenware wall tiles from the Palace of Fuad Pasha, in Istanbul, Turkey, dates to the mid 18th century.

The tiles are painted in underglaze with blue, red and green. The central portion has a geometric pattern formed of waved blue lines tapering at ends on a white ground, each square enclosing three eye-like balls and leafy devices in polychrome. There is a conventional floral border in polychrome on a dark blue ground.

Tile like these were traditionally made in the famous pottery centre of Iznik in Anatolia, between the 16th and 17th centuries, but were also imitated elsewhere in the Ottoman empire.
