Authentic Ming dynasty peirod Chinese Blue and White plate with rare chrysanthemum shape, the plate actually can be dated from King Wanli, Ming dynasty(1572-1620). The typical "darker blue" indicates the colbalt was mined from the Old Wstern Regions. The bottom is also a good indicator to show the trace of the craftslmanship. This plate is most likely for export purpose, especially to Dutch.
