Product Information

The 925 grade silver and quartz stoneware letter opener is designed and handmade by Designed by Best brand with the Anatolian silver crafting tradition without any use of dies, molds or presses. The stoneware ornament is made from an earthenware mixture which contains 92% of natural quartz. The ceramic dough prepared by mixing the ground natural quartz crystals with clay and glass powder is hand crafted and after a drying period of 25 days at room temperature it is cooked at intense heat in a special furnace, then it is hand painted and decorated with traditional 15th and 16th century Iznik (Nicea) design, covered with a layer of glaze then baked at 910° C in the kiln.
The galleon theme painted on the crockery were inspired by the 1538 Preveze victory which was achieved under the leadership of Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha. Household objects of everyday life made between 1545 and 1650, such as dishes, pitchers and cups, adorned with galleon themes have enriched the collections the Victoria & Albert Museum and also of other important museums around the world.
