A group of tiles, belonging to the first half of 15th century, in Bursa, Edirne, Kutahya and Larende, represent technical and stylistic resemblance. Similarity between these tiles indicates the Masters of Tabriz who worked in Bursa Yesil (Green) Complex. The chronological relations between them, reveal a significant route about the journey of Masters of Tabriz. Survey about the tile revetments, can be supported by sociocultural background based on history sources. This study suggests a proposal about career of the Masters of Tabriz by using art objects and history data.
