A type of Chinese blue and white porcelain produced during the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, decorated with panels of repeating designs. ‘Kraak’ is the Dutch word for ‘carrack’, a Portuguese galleon trading with the East Indies, one of which was captured in 1603 carrying porcelain of this kind.
