Boxes of this pattern and shape are rare. A wucai box and cover of the same pattern from the Yokogawa Collection is included in the Illustrated Catalogue of the Tokyo National Museum, Chinese Ceramics II, Tokyo, 1990, no. 324. A very similar example fitted with the original cover was sold at Christie's Paris, 10 June 2009, lot 125.
Compare to a similar square box decorated with boys at play from the Manno Art Museum sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 28 October 2002, lot 553; and another square box decorated with pairs of dragons, but of slightly different form, sold at Hong Kong Christie's, 30 May 2005, lot 1458.
