No other bowl of this size and design appears to be recorded, but smaller Jiajing bowls with dragons are known. See a related type with slightly everted rims, decorated with a pair of dragons striding among scrolling clouds, but above upright lotus petals instead of waves, the rims without stylised bands, including one example in the Meiyintang collection, illustrated by Regina Krahl, ibid., vol. 2, no. 696, sold in our London rooms, 8th/9th July 1974, lot 247, and twice at Christie’s London, 12th December 1977, lot 150, and 8th December 1986, lot 329. Compare also another type of even smaller size, decorated with a frieze dragon, phoenix and crane between a classic-scroll and stylised lappets, such as one from the collection of George de Menasce, sold in these rooms, 28th April 1998, lot 792.
