Dr. Jorg mentions in Interaction in Ceramics 1984:
Although the panels are still traceable to the model in Kraakporselein, these motifs clearly exhibit the characteristics of the Japanese style of decoration, which developed independently. The phoenix (ho-o or fenghuang) with their fanned-out tails appear on both Kakiemon and Imari and were imitated on faience and porcelain in Europe as a typically Japanese motif (Cf. cat. no. 129)
Dishes with VOC monogram are naturally exemplary of East-West relations in ceramics and the role the company played in them. No special mention is made of them in the trade documents, but it can be taken that they were ordered for the use of the company staff at the factory on Deshima and possibly also in Batavia and other factories in Asia.
