Jörg, 'Famille Verte - Chinese Porcelain in Green Enamels’, Groninger Museum, 2011, p. 58, pl. 57, where Jörg describes how the different themes, the powder-blue, the underglaze blue and the overglaze iron-red and famille verte enamels ”showcases the virtuosity of the porcelain producer, who used various decorative techniques in different media, for which three kiln firings were needed.” (p. 58).
