For an oil bottle of a similar design see Oriental Ceramic Society, Porcelain for Palaces: The Fashion for Japan in Europe, 1650-1750 (London, 1990), pl. 22, p. 87. Another example with an illustration of the foot see Yamashita Sakuro, Shoki no Imari [Early Imari] (Tokyo, 1971), pl. 26. Further examples of related wares are illustrated in Hideo Hata, An Appreciation of Imari (Tokyo, 1971), nos. 3 and 82.
The present example, in underglaze iron brown and with an attached sherd of a piece in underglaze copper red is exaggeratedly Korean in shape, with the sharp division between the thrown upper part and the turned lower part, quite unlike anything from Arita.
