It is rare to find Jiajing café-au-lait glazed pieces with incised decoration. Compare a blue glazed dish with similar incised phoenix decoration in the Baur Collection, illustrated in John Ayers, Chinese Ceramics in the Baur Collection, vol. 1, Geneva, 1999, p. 139, no. 83. For an undecorated dish with similar brown glaze, see one in the Beijing Palace Museum, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, vol. 37, Hong Kong, 1999, no. 57.
