A Qianlong bowl of this pattern is illustrated in Porcelain of the National Palace Museum. Blue-and-White Ware of the Ch'ing Dynasty, Book II, 1968, pl. 25; and another was sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 5 November 1996, lot 822.
The design of this bowl is based on that found on a few Xuande-marked bowls painted around the exterior with the bajixiang amidst scrolling lotus, such as the example illustrated in Blue and White Porcelain with Underglazed Red (I), The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 2000, pl. 147.
