Porcelain Plate with an Ottoman Woman Figure

ottoman woman figure on porcelain plate
A perfect seeker's challenge! This 19th century porcelain plate with a figure of Ottoman woman has been recently auctioned in Istanbul. The way she dressed, her necklace and earrings, the hat, her facial features strongly suggest that she modeled for the artist. I have been trying to find out who she was for the last couple of days with no luck, so far.

Diameter: 29 cm.
Estimated value: $ 400
