This is a possible Jiajing piece as it has a purple undertone and no black spots, which was common for Jailing porcelain (During the Jailing period, the formula that was used to produce blue and white porcelain was generally low in iron and manganese which produced an undertone of purple). Inside this lovely bow, it depicts a scholar wearing high hat on a deer which is called “Lu Gao Sheng”. “Lu Gao Sheng” are phonograms of “deer”, “High, tall” and “To raise”. On the outside, a happy couple was outside their home talking, a vendor carrying luggages is approaching to them.
