Reticulated fahua meiping of this type are quite rare, especially with the unusual peacock and peony decoration of the present vase. Two fahua meiping of similar shape, both carved in openwork with a scene of figures in a landscape, are published. One by J. Harrison-Hall, Ming Ceramics in the British Museum, London, 2001, pp. 413-4, no. 13:9; the other in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Great Collections, vol. 7, Musée Guimet, Paris, Tokyo/New York/San Francisco, 1981, pl. 75.
