Vintage Istanbul souvenir wall hanging plate featuring a lightly etched historical landmark on black enameled copper. It depicts a prominent 16th century Istanbul mosque, the Suleymaniye.

Metal is quite thick and this little plate weighs 3.5 oz (100 gr)

It has a diameter of 5.5'' (14 cm). A hole has been pierced near the top for hanging (it has no hanger). The plate has a convex shape and bulges outward for 4/5'' (2 cm).

Near the bottom it reads, "Süleymaniye Istanbul" and is signed decor (or decar). Suleymaniye was built by the Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan and blended Byzantine (half domes) and Islamic styles (slender minarets). It is said that the mosque was an expression of the patron, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificient, to represent himself as the second Solomon.

It is in used condition showing considerable wear and tarnish. The colors have faded and there are significant scratches and small dents. The edges and the reverse side has darkened. The reverse side also displays some patina, dark spots and general discoloration. There are no tears or cracks. It needs a gentle cleaning.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly upload or send you photos from different angles if you like.
