Iznik plate with cintamani

Painted in cobalt blue, apple green and brownish red with a central wavy six-legged starfish surrounded by six clusters of bold cintamani, a quintessentially Ottoman motif of central Asian origin.  It has a low foot and a sloping rim decorated with triangular motifs containing truncated prunus blossoms.  This is an unusually well-executed piece from the last phase of Iznik production. 

Ottoman Turkey, Iznik
