It is very rare to find café-au-lait-glazed porcelain from the Jiajing period, although a slightly smaller Jiajing-marked dish in the Palace Museum, Beijing, is illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum - 37 - Monochrome Porcelain, Hong Kong, 1999, p. 63, no. 57, together with a deep bowl, p. 62, no. 56. Compare, also, another coffee-brown-glazed Jiajing bowl in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, included in Monochrome Ware of the Ming Dynasty, Book II, Hong Kong, 1968, pl. 13.
