See W. B. Honey, Guide to the Later Chinese Porcelain, London, 1927, pl. 88, for the almost identical plate in the Salting Collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and p. 53, where the author says the border design has "an effect of almost bewildering intricacy ... such a plate ... is a masterpiece, and shows an admirable fluency of line. These profuse but finely articulated designs reveal qualities of art of no mean order ...." Cf. Howard and Ayers, op. cit., vol. I, p. 163, pl. 149, and the example in the Mottahedeh collection, Sotheby's, New York, 19 October 2000, lot 166.
