Close-up of a polychrome tile panel (94 x 28½ cm). Underglaze-painted, from Iznik, 2nd half of 16th century.

The whole panel is made up of three squares and depicts a tree with green branches and leaves, and rounded red fruit. The squares are larger than those normally made in Iznik, indicating that the panel was made to order for a specific building. Another example of this rare design appears in the Royal loggia of the Selimiye Mosque in Edirne.
