An elegant split-leaf palmette Ottoman dish. Iznik pottery, or Iznik ware (after the town of Iznik in western Anatolia), is a category of Ottoman decorated ceramic that was produced from the end of the 15th century until the end of the 17th century.

The split-leaf palmette motifs found on this dish became during the midst of the 16th century a pervasive design element within the imperial Ottoman workshops, and is well attested on Iznik pottery. The split-leaf palmette motif was most likely inspired by Persian manuscript illumination, and is frequently found in artefacts such as ceramics (dishes and tiles) and metalwork.
