It is interesting to note that the double petal pattern on the current bowl can be seen on blue and white wares made in the imperial kilns at Jingdezhen during the Yongle and Xuande periods, see one example with a Xuande mark in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Blue and White Porcelain with Underglazed Red (I), The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 2000, p. 162, no. 154. The same double petal design also appears on white wares of the early Ming period such as the bowl, dated to the Yongle period from the Kempe Collection, offered in the Imperial Sale, 30 May 2012, lot 3979. A Longquan celadon bowl of identical design and size to the current bowl is in the National Palace Museum, Taipei and illustrated in Green- Longquan Celadon of the Ming Dynasty, Taipei, 2009, p. 36, no. 9.
