Displayed in this wall-cupboard is a selection of Chinese porcelain from the Rockox House. This type of Chinese porcelain was one of the most popular of export goods; it takes its name from the last emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), Wan-li (1563–1620). The Dutch term for it, kraakporselein, derives from the type of Portuguese ship know as a carraca, which was used for the first imports into Europe of export porcelain at the end of the sixteenth century.
