Compare the 18th century white jade bowl illustrated by M. Knight et. al., in Later Chinese Jades: Ming Dynasty to Early Twentieth Century, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, 2007, p. 129, no. 113, where the authors note that the thin walls of the vessel highlight the translucency of the material and the purity of its color, two characteristics shared with its porcelain prototypes. See, also, a similar greenish-white jade bowl dated to the 18th century in the Museum of East Asian Art, Bath, illustrated by A. Forsyth and B. McElney in Jades from China, The Museum of East Asian Art, 1994, p. 405, no. 340.
