At the centre of the design is a turquoise ‘Tree of Life’ motif with winding and overlapping branches from which finely painted floral stems, typical of the free-hand 'Potters’ style', emerge. The remaining decoration of the dish is indebted to the Baba Nakkas rumi-hatayi style of the formative years of Iznik production between 1470 and 1520.
