Kraak Porcelain

The Rise of Global Trade in the Late 16th and Early 17th Centuries

Jorge Welsh (ed.)

Exhibition catalogue with introduction and catalogue entries by Teresa Canepa and article by Christine van der Pejl-Ketel; A scholarly overview of kraak porcelain, the distinctive blue and white porcelain that became the largest and most varied group of export porcelain wares manufactured throughout the reigns of Wanli (1573-1620), Tianqi (1621-1627) and Chongzhen (1628-1644). Kraak porcelain is of particular historical importance because it is the first Jingdezhen blue and white export porcelain that was mass-produced and shipped in large quantities around the world. 59 porcelains are comprehensively studied.
