A dish with very similar field is in the Gulbenkian Collection (Maria Queiroz Ribeiro, Iznik Pottery, Lisbon 1996, no. 32, p. 149).
The fish-scale pattern which covers the ground of this bowl was first used to decorate a jug in the form of a fish in the Benaki Museum, Athens, dating from the 1520s (Inv. no. 10; Nurhan Atasoy and Julian Raby, Iznik, the Pottery of Ottoman Turkey, London, 1989, pl. 124, p. 106). The scale pattern was almost certainly originally inspired by its use in Yuan Chinese blue and white porcelain. One dish in the Topkapi Palace has cusped panels of this design coupled with so many elements including a spiralling ground and a wave and rock border, that it is difficult not to think that it was a major influence on the designers of Iznik pottery (Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics in the Topkapi Saray Museum, London 1986, no. 552, p. 489, col.pl.p. 387). The use of a fish-scale field design can also be seen in Islamic art on a 15th century twin dragon-headed candlestick from Khorassan in the David Collection (Kjeld von Folsach, Islamic Art, Copenhagen 1990, no. 346, p. 207).
