"Produced in the Wan Li era (1573-1619), the Chinese prototypes are more tightly controlled and more elaborate that the museum's Persian version. In place of nine rim panels in the Far Eastern piece our bowl has four, more widely dispersed over the rim area and enclosing loosely executed foliate forms. The elaborate scene usually appearing in the center of such bowls here is reduced to a simple bouqet, now in part reconstruction."
