Japanese production of porcelain, which began in the early seventeenth century, flourished in the second half of the century in part thanks to the demands of the Dutch, who needed a new supplier as a result of the political disorder in China at the time. The shape and decoration of this dish follow the Chinese kraak ware; however, the colors of the enamels are uniquely Japanese.
