Dish with Split-Leaf Palmette Design

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 460

The split‑leaf palmette motifs found on this dish became a pervasive design element within the imperial Ottoman workshop. Most likely inspired by Persian manuscript illumination, Ottoman artists creatively adapted this motif for their works in other media, such as ceramics and metalwork.
