In 1859 Deck invented the turquoise glaze that came to be known as "bleu de Deck," first applying it to his Iznik-inspired pottery. He eventually used it to emulate Chinese monochrome wares, making the turquoise glaze itself the primary focus. This bowl also features Chinese-inspired relief decoration in the form of dragons.
