NoteThis Junyao dish is remarkable for its rich and attractively distributed purple splashes. Most comparable dishes are predominantly glazed in blue, but a similar dish was sold in our London rooms, 12th November 2003, lot 134. Two Junyao dishes with bright purple splashes from the William Cleverly Alexander Collection were sold in our London rooms, 6th May 1931, lots 144 and 150, the former sold again in these rooms, 21st May 1985, lot 70, the latter now in the Percival David Foundation, illustrated in The World's Great Collections: Oriental Ceramics, vol. 6, Tokyo, 1982, col. pl. 17.
