Comments/Information/Identification: Wanli or Kraak porcelain early 16th century. Kraak is a type of Chinese export porcelain mainly produced in the late Ming Dynasty. The piece I found was made in the Wanli Emperors reign from 1573–1620 (looking at other Wanli Kraak styles my little pieces fit right in with the segmented designs).
Can you identify this fragment?
Do you know who made it or what it was once part of?

Yes it dates from the late Wanli period, around 1600-1620. This looks like the lower section of a large Kraak ware bowl
