Lot Essay

A very similar dish depicting a spotted blue horse is in the Kiraç Collection (Laure Soustiel: Splendeurs de la Céramique Ottomane, Paris, 2000, no.57, p.96). The two horses are so close in design that they are probably by the same artist. That example however has a border similar to that of the dish with a bird in this sale, lot 6 on the facing page.
