kutahya Iznik Cini fake

I have in my younger years always abstained from wearing such silly things as caps and other sports clothes. However, on one occasion I was in Turkey with some friends, one of whom (his name is Eric Krabbenbosch) kept pestering me to put on a cap. The minute I did so I was captured on film. Later, returning from one of my Turkey trips, I found this friend, who is a talented draughtsman, had taken the picture and painted my face on a plate that he bought. Later again I showed a picture of the plate (this picture) to Mr. Gürsoy. He was much impressed by the work of this friend, whose name is Eric Krabbenbosch.

So this is a fake "Iznik çini" plate, but in Kütahya you can take a picture to any pro and have it put on a plate.

other sizes: small medium original
