The aesthetic and inspiring Midea jug is made with adorable motifs of tulips and carnations, in vivid colors of blue, red and turquoise – on a white backdrop. Both the colors, shape and decorations of the jug, is clearly inspired by the Ottoman era, where design and production of colorful and intricate ceramic art was at the highest. Especially flower motifs were a treasured theme in several of these amazing artworks, but also symbols and poetic references were used for inspiration in designs, shapes and decorations.
The tulip and the carnation have both played major roles in the Turkish history of arts and crafts, and they are, still today, commonly used as decorations in a variety of shapes, colors and designs. “En passant” the tulip is today celebrated as the Turkish national flower.
The ceramic Midea jug 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 class. Through 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 carefully selected and handmade ceramics from Kütahya, with a special focus on an inspiring and aesthetic design, a meticulous handiwork and good quality.

This ceramic jug is, in every way, a truly unique piece of craftmanship, shining with a special aura of authenticity, class and style.
The Midea jug is a unique piece of pottery and should be preserved with attention and care. The ceramic jug is dishwasher safe.
