It is unusual to find a dish in this palette without a patterned border around the central decoration, such as the dish with a ruyi border encircling a central design of flowering plants included in the exhibition, Noted Chinese Ceramics, Japan, 1992, no. 155. Compare, also, another Yongzheng dish decorated with a bird perched on a flowering branch, illustrated by J. Ayers, The Baur Collection: Chinese Ceramics, Geneva, 1974 vol. IV, no. A568-569.
