Lot Essay

Compare the present lot to a slightly larger Jiajing mark and period dish (12 cm. diam.) in the British Museum, published by Margaret Medley in Illustrated Catalogue of Ming Polychrome Wares in the Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art, London, 1978, p. 25, no. 56. Also see another saucer dish of similar size and bearing the same incised Jiajing mark decorated in green from the Collection of Roger Pilkington (1928-69), sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 6 April 2016.
