Özet

This paper deals with the Ottoman clay pipes found during the excavations carried out at the courtyard of Kutu Han, located at Tire district of Izmir, in 2012. Plentiful ceramics of the periods before and after the construction of the han building were discovered in the excavations of 2012 for restoration in the building, which was constructed in 1429. Besides unglazed ceramics, imported and domestically produced cups are also available among the finds of the 18th-19th centuries. These cups prove that a coffee house known to have existed at the han in the Republican Period had existed in the Ottoman Period too. During the excavation, red, white and grey paste pipes were found which were of 18-19th centuries' production. The surfaces of some pipes are slipped and burnished. The pipes were shaped with two methods in terms of the production technique. Of the pipes divided into two groups as elbow and elbowless pipes according to their shapes, the elbow pipes were mold-made, whereas the elbowless pipes were wheel-made. It's aimed to introduce and emphasize the position of the pipes found in this form and the ones found in the other regions of Ottoman Empire.
