Among common examples of early Iznik pottery that have survived in relatively large numbers are mosque lamps ("Kandil"). Thought to be specially commissioned for mosques and tombs exclusively and not used in the palace or residences, these lamps would hang from the ceilings of mosques and tombs with burning oil and wicks in them. The original of this mosque lamp was produced around 1580 and is currently in display at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Museum in Lisbon, Portugal.
