The present cloisonne table is extremely rare and only one other published example is known. See an almost identical cloisonne table in the Uldry collection, dated second half of the 17th century, illustrated in Chinese Cloisonné: The Pierre Uldry Collection, London, 1989, no. 182. The similarity between these two tables in their decoration and their later adapted wood structure strongly suggest that they were probably made as a pair. The present decoration combining this type of sophisticated dragons and the diaper ground is also quite extraordinary, compare with a rare cloisonne enamel incense stand, also dated second half of the 17th century, illustrated by Sir Harry Garner, Chinese and Japanese Cloisonné Enamels, London, 1970, pl. 65.
