Kraak Plate
by: Werner Troesch

This plate is ok. Early 17 th C exportware to Europe, probably Holland. The hanging in iron looks original and dates to 19 th C. Plates of this size go for USD. 500.-

I would recommend you visit
This is probably the best place on the web with information on Kraak porcelain.
Please also check out the fake Kraak information.
One of the points to check is the plate rim. In genuine Ming Kraak porcelain the rim of the plate frequently shows spots where the glaze does not cover the clay body. If there are none, it could have been made later. There are also copies made in the Qing dynasty which do not seem to have these glaze defects.

You will find a good indication on prices on the site above, but please note price may differ widely depending on type and quality of decoration.
