Pictures, Images & Photos of Ottoman Style Iznik Tiles.

Pictures, images & photos of Iznik glazed ceramic Arabesque Ottoman tiles. Iznik was famous for its highly decorated ceramic pottery from the 15th century to the end of the 17th century. Suleyman the magnificent and his wife Hurrem (Roxelana) became big fans of Iznik ceramics and used Iznik tiles to decorate their palace, mosques and building that they built. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, better known as the Blue Mosque, contains over 20,000 Iznik tiles to adorn its interior. The famous Harem of the Topcapi Palace is lavishly decorated with Iznik Arabesque designs. The combination of panels of different tile designs in the same rooms make for a spectacular display. Iznik tile designs sum up the Ottoman styles and tastes in a vivid way.
