Ming blue and white kraak crow cup made at the kilns at Jingdezhen. Very pretty with excellent potting, colour and painting. The rim is slightly barbed and flares outwards, the body is slightly moulded around the panels.

Painted in the traditional style of panels. These eight panels show the four noble flowers two of them with butterflies and two with birds.

The inside is also painted with panels that are far more sparsely decorated with flowers. The base of the inside is painted with the crow perched on the rock, which is where this class of bowls gets its name from.

Kraak was the first of the real blue and white porcelain that was made for export to The Netherlands and later to Britain brought by the countries East India Companies.

Very good example of this type and is larger than normal
