The size, shape and decoration of this dish are all features that are found on other large Longquan celadon dishes that were often exported to the Near East. Four similar dishes of comparable size (41-49.5 cm. diam.) dated to the 15th century are in the Topkapi Saray Museum, Istanbul, one of which is illustrated by R. Krahl in Chinese Ceramics in the Topkapi Saray Museum, vol. I, Yuan and Ming Dynasty Celadon Wares, London, 1986, p. 326, no. 347.
