Ming Double Gourd Vase
by: Jan

This is for sure a Kraak porcelain vase.
It was made between ca. 1590 and 1620, thus during the Ming dynasty when emperor Wanli was reigning.

Not sure if this is Kraak or Ming. It resembles the decoration of some Ming vases, but I am not sure if these are Kraak porcelain proper.
Notably, the bottom seems to be different from other Wanli Kraak items I have handled. It is a bit too clean, without sand traces, etc.

Maybe someone else can help better with this...
