The flower basket motif, which was popular during the Wanli period (1573-1619), continued into the Kangxi period. For a Wanli example of a shallow bowl painted in the center with a flower basket below flower scroll on the rim, see Michael Butler et al., Seventeenth Century Chinese Porcelain from the Butler Family Collection, Virginia, 1990, pp. 40-1, no. 5. For a Tianqi mark and period (1621-1627) example see the large dish (33 cm.) in the Nezu Art Museum, Tokyo, illustrated in Sekai Toji Zenshu, vol. 14, Tokyo, 1976, p. 114, no. 115. Another Tianqi mark and period dish similar to the Nezu Art Museum dish, in the Idemitsu Museum of Arts, is illustrated in the exhibition catalogue, In Pursuit of the Dragon, Seattle Art Museum, 1988, p. 147, no. 80.
