In the early Islamic period, the tombaking technique was widely used and there are many tombac works belonging to the Ottoman Period. Tombak is the name given to copper and copper alloy items covered with a mixture of gold and mercury. Tombating, after the 24 carat gold powder is completely dissolved in mercury, it is filtered; It is formed by rubbing the surface to be stored with a brush and firing at a low temperature to allow the mercury to fly away. The essence of the tombing work is that the gold in the mercury penetrates through the pores of the copper and covers the copper surface in a durable way.
Today, such artifacts, which decorate the collections of domestic and foreign museums, have been transported abroad in various ways. Tombak technique is much more durable than gold or silver gilding technique, and most of the works made with this technique have reached today.
Embroidered Bottle from Istanbul is inspired by a 1764 rose flower. A composition with floral patterns is decorated on the bottle. The original of the work is exhibited in the Athens Benaki Museum.
