Painting decoration technique on wood is an element of decoration which is liked and applied in civil architecture as well as religious architecture. However, the number of houses with painting decoration on wood, which could come without any deterioration until today, is quite a little. Canikli Mansion, located in No: 39, in Mahmut Pasa Quarter, Central District of Tokat Province, is one of the rare examples of the 19th century painting decoration. In the last months of 2016 a restoration proposal was made for the Mansion within the scope of social project carried out by Tokat Municipality and repair and maintenance work was initiated and restoration was completed at the end of 2018.
It is seen that the cabinet, large closet and ceilings were covered with yellow oil paint before the restoration works of the main room that is located at the southwest end of the first floor of the house. During the restoration, by blasting work in the main room the original decorations were uncovered and taken under protection. In our study, it is aimed to evaluate Canikli Mansion in terms of architectural and painting decoration and identify its place in the period.
