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. Some pictures are extreme close ups, all were taken under the available, artificial, light. Last time I visited the museum the whole gallery was closed for restoration.

I will try and add some comments one of these days, and arrange things a bit. I am not an expert though, so don't expect much. These are just things that struck my fancy (... and could be photographed: often structural elements of the cases were blocking my view, and since most pictures were taken with long exposure times I had to push my lens against the glass to get a picture).
