Possibly in Warwick Castle, Warwick, England 
William W. Winkworth, London. 
Freer Gallery of Art, purchased from William W. Winkworth, London. 
 According to a summer 1973 conversation between J.A. Pope and Mr. Winkworth, the dish may have been in a collection in the Warwick Castle. In August 2009, Ohashi Koji, Kyushu Ceramic Museum, noted that dishes of this type are commonly found in England. See Curatorial Remarks 5 and 16 in the object record

The several extant examples of large molded dishes with this design have been called Kakiemon ware, yet the red is softer than the typical Kakiemon red, and the opulent decoration has much in common with Nabeshima ware. Alternatively, dishes of this type used to be known as Shibuemon ware, a name said to refer to a person working in the Kakiemon workshop who died in 1716 or 1735, according to dubious documents in the Kakiemon family papers. At first the design of crest-like paulownia blossoms, scattered over a brocade-like lattice, seems wholly artificial, yet the extending lines of the lattice hark back to a naturalistic motif, found on other Arita wares, of blossoms within an open-weave bamboo basket.
