The East Asian motif of figures in a landscape was frequently chosen for kraak ware in the early seventeenth century. The decoration of this dish employs the same motif, painted in a style based on Japanese prototypes of the mid-seventeenth century. The lobed form is derived from European metalwork dishes.
