On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 460

One of the most spectacular Iznik pieces in the Museum’s collection, this saucer‑shaped dish displays a palette of rich blue and bright turquoise characteristic of early Iznik ceramics. The floral scrolls on the cavetto are inspired by fifteenth-century Chinese celadon ware.
