For two similar figures, compare Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyingtang Collection, London, 1994, pls. 87 & 88. The modelling is very similar, but the pigments on the example here offered are better preserved; another standing figure closely related to the present one is published in Mayuyama, Seventy Years, vol. I, Kyoto & Tokyo, 1976, pl. 123.
