There are several variations of this 18th Century Chinese Kitchen Ching Allah Plate or “Sino-Islamic plates”. Some of an earlier period and some later were first studied by Madam Kamer Aga-Oglu. She believes these plates to be dated from the late 17th to early 18th Century and that there are only five specimens known to her, three in the Museum of Anthropology of the University of Michigan which was excavated in the Philippines in 1922; one in the collection of Evett D. Hester, also found in the Philippines and now in the Natural History Museum, Chicago; another in the Royal Ontario Museum of Archaeology, Toronto.
