While kraak porcelain found particular popularity in Europe, China was producing Swatow ware for export to Japan, Southeast Asia, India, and Indonesia. Named for a port city from which they were exported, these dishes have a distinctively gritty glaze and were made along the southern coast of China in the 16th and 17th centuries.
