Porcelain and kitchens

The kitchens have their entrances in the Second Court.

The Top Kapi museum houses a large (one of the largest in Europe) collection of porcelain, most of it from China, some from Japan. Some was locally made, much later, in the Istanbul porcelain factories.

The collection is housed in the former kitchens, on the south side of the second court. That part has been restored, and then photography was forbidden. A shame. I add some pictures of the kitchens here so it is not all porcelain.
