The central flower scroll is evidently inspired by an early 15th century design which can be seen on dishes illustrated by John Alexander Pope, Chinese Porcelains from the Ardebil Shrine, Washington, 1956, pl. 35, and in Illustrated Catalogue of Ming Dynasty Porcelain in the National Palace Museum, vol. I, Tokyo, 1977, pl. 19, although on the Ming dishes, the medallion is enclosed by sprigs of flowers radiating towards a barbed rim. Compare also Pope, op.cit., pl. 34, no. 29.92, for an early 15th century dish with a related flower scroll around the well with large blooms divided by smaller buds near the rim.
