I really found something intriguing. This plate decorated with what are often seen as European houses. Something seen on Transitional Kraak plates and bowls. I borrowed a few pictures from
Pater Gratia Oriental art and also the following description to go with that bowl:
The large panels have a border with scrolls or vegetal motifs and are usually filled with extremely stylized and thinly-drawn flowers with Iznik influence or with European houses with Chinese figures. The narrow panels are filled with tulips and thinly-drawn flowers with Iznik influence. These bowls are an exact parallel with Border IX dishes and should be dated accordingly: 1635-1650. Curiously, while there are several Border IX dishes in the Topkapi Saray, there are no bowls with Transitional features. This would indicate that the production was mainly intended for the Dutch home market where most of these bowls are still to be found today. (Rinaldi 1989, pp.163-164)
Although the manufacture and the division into panels are still in kraak style, the decoration is Transitional, in particular the use of the ‘tulip’ motif. It has been suggested that the spinner and the houses were derived from European prints and drawings, but there is no evidence for this as yet. (Jörg 1984, pp.54-55, cat. 11 & Jörg 2011/1, pp.144-145, cat. 40)
In our plate you can also see the floral iznik influence and the back has floral sprees with birds. The porcelain is very similar to Kraak, but the decoration is very different in layout. A very interesting crossover piece.
