The first Tulip Fanatics were not the Dutch, but the Sultan's of the Ottoman empire. They were the first to cultivate the wild flower, with many such as
Süleiman the Magnificent having it dominate his lavish gardens. Today, the Tulip remains a prominent flower in the nations that compose the former Ottoman Empire, and these small serving bowls reflect unique, Turkish designs.
The bowls themselves small, perfect for a little serving of custard or other dessert!
