Turkey: what is this distinctive ceramic style and where is it made?

(Maybe not exactly a travel question, but I hope it's on the subject here.)

Several years ago, while traveling in Montenegro, in a souvenir shop in Kotor and in a shop in Ulcinj, I found beautiful ceramic dishes, tableware and other items:

Example
Another example
Second example, back

I liked them a lot, but they were somewhat expensive (~ € 20-30 for a large plate), so I bought several, not as much as I wanted. They do not bear the manufacturer's mark of any kind (except "Handmade 65" on one of them, shown in the photo above).

Later I saw them at a souvenir shop in my hometown of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia (the shop specializes in & # 39; souvenirs from around the world & # 39;), but there were only a few and also expensive (about the same price).

I am now in Cyprus, and here are similar items in every souvenir shop. Slightly cheaper, but not much cheaper.

After searching Google, I find this can be called Turkey Iznik pottery (eg 1, 2), although the Wikipedia page on Iznik pottery does not have images of this style specifically, all images are of a similar style but different. I also remember finding an article on the internet that said Istanbul markets have a lot of those items at really low prices, but I can't find that item right now.

I will probably be in Istanbul next year, and I hoped that in some market I would find the same items, but much more than in the souvenir shops, since the latter are always expensive.

So my questions are:

  1. Is the name of Iznik pottery / ceramics correct? If not, what is the proper name of the articles of this style? If yes, is there a more specific name?
  2. Where are they made
  3. Can I buy them somewhere cheaper than in the stores where I have seen them? What typical prices should I expect?

Please note that I am not talking about authenticity, originality or whatever, all I want is to buy quality items of that style; that is, if items of this style are produced in multiple locations today, I don't care which one is "original." Also, I am not interested in similar but different styles, as shown in Wikipedia article about Iznik pottery, Uzbek pottery etc.

Why do we usually only eat turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas? Why not more often?

Only tradition, really. Although if you have a great family gathering, a turkey is a great bird and will feed more than a chicken. At other times it would be too big.

It is also quite difficult to successfully roast a turkey. If you cook it long enough for the legs to be ready, the breast will be overdone and dry. Stuffing the bird and rubbing butter on the chest inside the skin, or putting stuffing there, will help. This will wrap it in foil. This is not so much a problem with roasting a chicken because it is smaller.

One solution is to cut the legs and put them first in the oven. Which leads to the idea of ​​a turkey crown: this is a turkey with no legs and no wings, which essentially means that it only has turkey breast in the bone and that it will cook faster and still be moist. My brother-in-law, who is from our family. Christmas Chef, always buy one of those and that works with only 4 of us.

However, I could say one or two things on our behalf in the UK: we have no Thanksgiving, and in Christmas, it is likely that much of that has to do with what Charles Dickens wrote in his famous short novel "A Christmas Carol".

If you have not read or watched any movies, Ebenezer Scrooge, a rich but miserable banker, is visited at Christmas Eva for ghosts that show her the error of her ways. They show the misery it has caused and how happy other people are with less. He learns about the joy of giving and, to his surprise, discovers that what he thought were three nights when three ghosts showed him things was really only one, so he wakes up with Christmas Morning. He regrets how unpleasant he has been with his employee, Bob Cratchit, buys the turkey prize at the local butcher's window, yes, no one else has bought it! – and sends it to the Cratchits. How happy they are and even their paralyzed son, Tiny Tim, can say "God bless us all!"

The traditional Christmas the bird in the United Kingdom was goose, and it is probably due to Dickens that the turkey took over. Dickens also visited the USA. UU. And he gave public readings of his books, so it may be the reason why the same idea was realized there.

Traveling to Turkey by ferry

I want to ask if I have a valid Schengen with an ordinary Egyptian passport. Can I go to Turkey from Greece by ferry?

Does a Pakistani need a visa for a stopover in Turkey?

I am traveling from Pakistan to northern Cyprus and have a 10-hour stopover at the Istanbul airport. Can I visit the city of Istanbul without a visa?

turkey – Turkish visa application

Citizens of certain countries may request a & # 39; conditional electronic visa & # 39; or evisa on arrival that have certain conditions.

If you are a citizen of one of those countries and are applying for such a visa, you must use an airline that has established the correct protocols with the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For now, those are just the four airlines you have listed in your question. Flying with British Airways does not count.

You can find details on this Wikipedia page

Be sure to request the correct visa.
