Chrysanthemum-shaped dishes appear in a complete series of twelve colours, and an identical ruby-glazed dish is included in the most notable set of twelve in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Kangxi Yongzheng Qianlong, Hong Kong, 1989, p. 316, no. 145. Six are illustrated by Feng Xianming, Wenwu, 1984,p. 37, no. 10, where the author notes that a decree was issued in the eleventh year of Yongzheng (corresponding to A.D. 1733) instructing Nian Xiyao, Minister of the Imperial Household, to send 'twelve colours of chrysanthemum dishes, one of each colour, for the inspection of the permanent guardian of the treasury and chief eunuch Samuha'. The decree further mentions 'forty pieces to be fired of every type according to the samples'.
