Plate with grapes, ca. 1570. Turkey, Iznik. Islamic. Stonepaste; polychrome painted under transparent glaze; H. 2 7/8 in. (7.3 cm), Diam. 14 1/4 in. (36.2 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Edward C. Moore Collection, Bequest of Edward C. Moore, 1891 (91.1.102).

 

Lacking the clay necessary for the production of porcelain, potters in Turkey (and elsewhere in the Middle East) created stonepaste bodies that included clay and quartz to mimic the appearance of porcelain. The cluster of grapes in the center of this dish was inspired by fifteenth-century Chinese ceramics, which were first collected in Turkey in the sixteenth century.
