Zsolnay Iznik, Turkish design pottery tiles

Zsolnay Iznik, Turkish design pottery tiles


Description: A set of 5 Iznik ceramic tiles from The Zsolnay Factory of Pecs Hungary. Circa 1885. This partial set of tiles was probably meant to be used as a frame for a porcelain or pottery ‘picture’. Size and condition: the larger tile is: 13 7/8” long and 3 1/4” deep: 2 1/4” edge flake at one end, 1 1/4” edge flake at the other end (painted under glaze factory mark). 2 tiles 11 1/4” x 3 1/4”, one has a small corner edge flake and the other has a small area on the middle edge where the paint did not fire revealing the white glazed body, incised factory mark and the form # 1650. 2 corner tiles each is 3 3/4” square, hand inscribed number “1650”, edge flakes to each where the indented corners are located. So the tiles fit together as a frame without the bottom section as it is missing. These tiles must have been set into some other object as there is evidence that there is cement attached to areas of the back. A rare and early example of Turkish or Islamic designed tiles. The decorations reflect 15th through 17th century Iznik designs. The Zsolnay factory had a private museum collection of ancient pottery including many examples from North Africa, China, Persia, etc.
