Models of kilns appear to be extremely rare. A single example without cover, which also has the butterfly decoration, is in the Hodroff Collection, having been formerly in the Mottahedeh Collection; see Ronald W. Fuchs II, Made in China, Export Porcelain from the Leo and Doris Hodroff Collection at Winterthur, Winterthur, 2005, no. 96, p. 149, and Howard and Ayers, China for the West, London and New York, 1978, vol. I, no. 99, p. 121.
Compare the distinctive brickwork-pattern on these kilns with the chequered pattern of the robes on several Kangxi biscuit figures: one of two twin groups, Hehe Erxian, illustrated by Geoffrey Godden, Oriental Export Market Porcelain, London, 1979, fig. 163, p. 239; a figure of Shoulao illustrated by Walter Bondy, Kang-Hsi, München, 1923, pl. 169; and a figure of Budai exhibited Chinese Porcelain XVIc-XVIIIc, from the Collection of Dr. C. M. Franzero, Bluett & Sons Ltd., London, 1974, cat. no. 17.
