Exquisitely hand painted set of 7 Turkish wall plates Size of each plate (diameter) : 6.5 inches(medium) and 5 inches(small) . The Turkish people made decorative wall plates in Central Asia, and this art developed still further after the Seljuk Turks arrived in Anatolia, a land which had been an important centre of ceramic production from very early times. Both Seljuks and Ottomans adopted Anatolian materials and techniques for their ceramics. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Konya was the centre of Seljuk ceramic manufacture. For all the wall plates, organic paint has been used to colour them. These colours have a matt texture, and may bleed if they come in contact with liquid. Hence, buyers are strongly advised not to wipe plates with a wet cloth. All plates should be lightly dusted.These should not be used to serve food, they are to be hung on walls for purely decorative purpose only. All plates are wall hanging and come with an attached fixture at the back. Although all efforts are made to create identical plates to that of the images published on the website, there could be minor shade differences, as all plates are individually hand crafted and painted when an order is placed.
