Lot Essay

For a Longquan charger of the same size and decoration, refer to John Alexander Pope, Chinese Porcelains from the Ardebil Shrine, pl. 123, no. 29.630. See, also, Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Topkapi Saray Museum, vol. I, p. 329 for a number of such chargers, the most similar being no. 356, in which the lotus scroll is carved in the same loose style.
