Most likely introduced from the Islamic world, where it had developed in the ninth century in response to imported Chinese ceramics, the use of a tin-based glaze to cover a dark earthenware body has a long history in Europe. Here, the tin glaze is painted with blue pigment on a plate whose shape and design parallel Chinese kraak ware.
