FLORAL MOTIFS IN TILES

Floral patterns were especially favored for the decoration of interiors in Ottoman architecture and the most important area of their application was wall tiles. Tiles manufactured in Iznik between the 16th and late 17th centuries embellished the walls of not only mosques and tombs but also of place buildings.
