Yellow and green enamelled jars dating to the late Ming dynasty appear to be very rare. Although other examples of this form are known decorated in different enamels, predominantly in yellow and red, no other example of this particular pattern decorated in green and yellow appears to have been published. For an example of three Jiajing-marked dragon jars, see Mayuyama, Seventy Years, Vol. 1, Tokyo, 1976, p. 278, nos. 832-834.
Compare with a number of related yellow and green enamelled Wanli-marked jars decorated with dragons enclosed within barbed cartouches. One from the Yokogawa collection is illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Greatest Collections, Vol. 1, Tokyo National Museum, 1982, no. 124; another in the Baur collection, Geneva is illustrated by J. Ayres, The Baur Collection, Vol. 2, Geneva, 1969, no. A208; and another illustrated, op. cit., Tokyo, 1976, p. 313, no. 935.
