In the early Islamic period, the tombak technique was widely used and there are many tombak artifacts from the Ottoman Period. Tombak is the name given to copper and copper alloy items coated with a mixture of gold and mercury. Tombaking, after the 24 carat gold powder is completely dissolved in the mercury, is filtered; It is formed by brushing the surface to be tombaked and baking at low temperature to allow the mercury to evaporate. The basis of the tombaking work is that the gold in the mercury enters the pores of the copper and coats the copper surface in a durable manner. These kinds of artifacts, which adorn the collections of domestic and foreign museums today, have been taken abroad in various ways. The Tombak technique is much more durable than the gold or silver gilding technique, and most of the works made with this technique have survived to the present day. The Embroidered Bottle from Istanbul was inspired by a 1764 gulabdan. A composition created with floral patterns is decorated on the bottle. The original of the work is exhibited in Athens Benaki Museum.
