Table Top Items from Turkey
Tessera offers a lovely selection of handcrafted dishes from Peru and Turkey that is ideal for everyday use or to enhance your home’s décor. Our exquisite, intricately hand-painted Turkish bowls and platters make perfect wedding gifts and serving pieces that will add the right accent to any table for any occasion.
Turkish Cinicilik pottery is made through a complex eight step process. Each step must be completed patiently and slowly or the piece will be lost. This makes every piece the quality of fine china. Each design features a symbol added by the artist. Many of these symbols are taken from nature. For example the tulip represents love, the butterfly represents delicacy or elegance, and the fish represents luck. In the Turkish culture, these symbols are very important to the meaning of the painted designs and make each creation a gift from the heart.
