One of my favorite ceramic pieces, a rummage market find this past summer. I recently lived in southern Turkey for a few years and greatly admire their pottery/ceramics. I lived in a "tourist trap" town, and would ride my bike to the town center to watch the tourists, lol! I think this is an older piece, as it has a triangle shaped impressed mark. Could I find this porcelain mark on the web? Of course not! I couldn't make out the mark so sent a photo of it to one of my Turkish friends - bingo!
Diameter is 12 inches. That bit on the rim that looks like a chip, isn't. It's glazed. Maybe where the potter's thumb rested...
As always, thanks for looking!
