THE GALLERY of HISTORICAL CAIQUES

In İstanbul, sea transport along the Bosphorus and Golden Horn is essential. This need was addressed by the Ottomans with the development of watercraft unique to their world. Among such watercraft were the Imperial and Court caiques, the latter used by the palace staff, as well as the piyade (light rowboats), pereme (heavy rowboats), Pazar kayığı (market boat), and various excursion boats. Examples of some of these vessels can be seen in the Gallery of Historical Caiques.

The majority of the collection consists of 19th-century Imperial caiques with and without kiosks (stern pavilions) that served the Sultan and his harem. The numbers of oars used were an important feature in their classification. Decorative floral carvings at the bow and stern indicate that the vessel served the harem, while weaponry, coat-of-arms, and shields designate a sultan's caique. In these decorations select examples of Turkish arts of calligraphy, decorative painting, relief carving, marquetry, inlay work, and fretwork are well reflected.

The small boats used by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, at his Florya mansion and at the Ankara Gazi Agricultural Station, are lap-strake built with mahogany planking. In contrast with the magnificence of the Imperial caiques, the practical and plain features these small boats symbolize the modest nature of the Republican era. The caique belonging to Atatürk.

In 19th century Çerağan Palace with its environs, painter: Seyfettin Soysalan, oil paint, 66 x 99 cm
Seam covered The Imperial caiques were built at the Imperial Naval Arsenal in İstanbul with timber brought from such places as İzmit, Yalova, Sarıçayır, Karamürsel, Akhisar, and Geyve. They were traditionally carvel built, but later examples employed lap-strake construction introduced from northern Europe.

Crescent formed The diversity of decorative elements visible on the Museum's caique collection is a result of the various styles employed and the periods in which they were executed. For example, caiques built during the reign of Adülmecid (1839-1861) carry a long, beak-shaped prow known as "kemanebaş", while those of the Sultan Abdülaziz era (1861-1876) display in addition an upward spiraling carved decoration, giving the prow a hook-shaped appearance called "kancabaş". The caiques of Sultan Mehmed Reşat V (1909-1918) are characterized by the presence of crescents carved in reliefs on the sides of the vessel.

Kiosk roof dome Kiosk section of the galley of the other vessels, the Galley dating to the 17th century is the largest and one of the oldest pieces in the collection. Used during the reign of Mehmet IV (1648-1687), it is 40 meters long and 5.7 meters at the beam, and was rowed by 144 rowers. The galley is constructed of chestnut, hornbeam, and oriental plane woods and is painted a red-brown color. Both the interior and exterior of the kiosk is inlaid with tortoise shell, mother-of-pearl, ebony, and ivory, and ornamented with semi-precious stones set in silver studs. Its calligraphic inscriptions embellished with carnation and tulip motifs, the kiosk represents one of the most important examples of the art of Ottoman mother-of-pearl inlaying.

Additionally, rigging elements from Ottoman sailing warships, tackle, figureheads, ornamental monograms of the sultans, ship's furniture, as well as panoramic engravings and watercolors depicting maritime aspects of İstanbul, and the throne used at the Naval Academy by Sultan Mahmut II (1808-1839) and later, are exhibited in this gallery.
