Delights of Kütahya.
Şebnem Akalın - Hülya Yılmaz Bilgi.

1997, İstanbul

Kütahya has a place in Turkish tile and ceramic centres functioning since the 14th century. Especially in the 18th century very elegant daily wares and liturgical items were produced to answer the needs of the people combining the inspirations from the Far Eastern and European porcelains and the local style.

Polychrome decoration with cobalt blue, turquoise, green and earthen red is common and above all, a bright yellow, never seen in Iznik ceramics, came into use as of the beginning of the century.

This catalogue contains inventory and colour images of 177 items from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Kütahya Tile and Ceramic Collection. 126 of the items are elegant and high quality examples from the 18th century making this collection a world-wide known one.
