The Mezulla bottle is made with a careful focus on both aesthetics, quality, traditions and design. The bottle is decorated with illustrations, tulips and carnations in bright colors of red, blue, turquoise and green, on a classic white background. The tulip plays an important role in Turkish historic arts and craftsmanship. During the Ottoman reign the tulip was prized as gold and at the royal court, tulip bulbs were given as valuable gifts to important connections. Both the tulip and the carnation are still very popular in modern day Turkey and are frequently used for decoration in various artforms, ceramics and textiles.
The Mezulla bottle is handmade in Kütahya, an area of Turkey well known for their techniques, traditions and designs in ceramic art and craftmanship. Where the renowned Iznik workshops were closely connected to the royal court, the artisans in Kütahya mainly produced elegant and sophisticated household ceramics to the higher middle classes. Throughout the last centuries, Kütahya has developed into a major ceramic area, famous for their outstanding quality and breathtaking designs and handicraft. At Malukka, we have chosen to present handmade ceramics from Kütahya, carefully selected with a special focus on an inspiring and aesthetic design, a meticulous handiwork and good quality.
The colorful design and classic elegant decorations will make the Mezulla bottle perfect for you who enjoys a creative original design, oozing with history and soul. The handmade bottle is made to be used e.g., for your favorite olive oils or as a wine or water decanter, but it will also look amazing as a beautiful addition to your home décor. Easy to clean and dishwasher proof.
The Mezulla bottle is a unique piece of ceramic pottery and should be preserved with attention and care. The handmade oil bottle is dishwasher safe.
We also have the finest collection of beautiful handmade bowls – perfect for serving fruits and salads.
As the ceramics are handmade by small and self-employed artisans, the delivery time may vary, and in some cases, take longer than the estimated 23 working days – due to the nature of handicrafts or circumstances at the individual artisan’s workshop. In this case you will, of course, be contacted by us. For further information please read “about us” and Terms and Conditions.
