Ottoman Tiles

I just received this beautiful card in the mail from a former student, turned friend and collegue from Istanbul. So beautiful, that we have a post today on Ottoman Tiles from the Topkapi Palace. The palace itself was in use roughly from 1459-1853, and the tile work is mostly Iznik ceramic, which from my little research, seems to have disappeared in the 18th century.
Thanks Cigdem!
