Jarres, terrailles, faïences et porcelaines dans l'Empire ottoman (XVIIIe-XIXe siècles)

Abstract : While the data resulting from archaeological excavations are still insufficient to get a precise idea of the pottery trade in the XVIIIth and XIXth century Ottoman empire, statistics, international exhibitions records, consular documents, the number of boats coming in and moving out of the chief Mediterranean ports, as well as records of European fabrics, enable us to locate the producing countries, evaluate the bulk and the price of the commercialised ceramics, to know which were the shipping, transit, and unloading ports and to specify the diffusion modes of these goods. Through the study of these commercial records it can be seen that the existence in the Porte territories -European and Asiatic Turkey, Aegean Islands- of delicate faience, chinaware, but also simple earthenware produced in European fabrics in the XVIIIth and XIXth century is quite important. Contrary to what we could be led to believe through the discoveries made on the spot, the trade of European crockery in these countries was in no means marginal, and as a matter of fact a great bulk of these goods was imported from Europe.
