A similar example, decorated in the interior with a standing official holding a hu tablet, is illustrated by
S. Marchant & Son, Exhibition of Chongzhen-Shunzhi Transitional Porcelain From A Private American Collection, London, 2007, p. 20, no. 9, where it is noted that the carved band on the exterior was probably intended to simulate carved lacquer. Other examples can be found in the British Museum, London, and the Topkapi Saray Museum, Istanbul (see Jessica Harrison-Hall, Catalogue of Late Yuan and Ming Ceramics in the British Museum, London, 2001, no. 12:40, and Regina Krahl and John Ayers, Chinese Ceramics in the Topkapi Saray Museum, Istanbul, London, 1986, vol. II, col. pl. 1245, respectively).
