This plate is in the Iznik style. It was made by the French ceramicist Théodore Deck who established a pottery in Paris producing wares inspired by Middle-Eastern and Chinese ceramics. Such wares catered to the growing taste in Europe for 'exotic' interiors.

This plate was previously owned by the British painter Lord Frederic Leighton (1830-96) who decorated his house in Holland Park in the Iznik style.
