Abstract:
This article describes faience fragments, a kind of Turkish art ceramics of XVII-XVIII cc., which have been produced in the Ottoman Empire in the city of Kütahya. Fragments of those cups are found on the territory of the former Ottoman fortress of Sed-Islam situated not so far from the Nedvigovka settlement of the Miasnikovskyi district of the Rostov region (on the left bank of the river Mertvyi Donets). The authors cite the modern classification of "Turkish" ceramics stored in archaeological funds of Archaeological reserve museum "Tanais". Kütahya potters have used Chinese and local Turkish motifs for decoration of their production.
