A similar bowl from the collection of Dr. Ip Yee was included in the Hong Kong O.C.S. exhibition, Chinese Blue and White Porcelain and Related Underglaze Red, City Museum and Art Gallery, Hong Kong, 1975, no. 76. Comparable examples are illustrated by J.A. Pope, Chinese Porcelains from the Ardebil Shrine, Smithsonian Institution, Freer Gallery of Art, Washington, 1956, pl. 47 (top left); by R.L. Hobson, Catalogue of Chinese Pottery and Porcelain in the Collection of Sir Percival David, Bt., London, 1934, pl. 134; and by A.D. Brankston, Early Ming Wares of Chingtechen, Beijing, 1938, pl. 13(c). The broad keyfret on the foot of the present bowl is particularly unusual, but can be seen on a bowl in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, included in the Special Exhibition of Early Ming Porcelains, 1982, no. 28.
Compare, also, the similar but larger bowl recovered from the late Yongle levels of an excavation of the Imperial kilns at Jingdezhen and included in the exhibition, Imperial Hongwu and Yongle Porcelain excavated at Jingdezhen, Chang Foundation, Taipei, 1996, pp. 94-95, no. 14.
