The shape of the present vase is very unusual for its pronounced, slightly angular mid-section, and it appears that no other vase of this exact design has been published. Nevertheless, it belongs to a group of Qianlong-period wares decorated with landscape panels on a coloured ground further embellished with elaborate floral scrolls, and a closely related example yellow-ground was sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 26 October 1993, lot 260. Compare also with a Beijing Palace Museum yellow-ground teapot enamelled with shaped panels containing landscapes and flowering branches, illustrated in Porcelains with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration, the Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 1999, pl. 110.
Other related vases with similar landscape medallions on coloured grounds decorated with feathery floral scrolls include a smaller blue-ground hu-form example in the National Palace Museum, Taiwan, illustrated in Catalog of the Special Exhibition of K'ang-hsi, Yung-cheng and Ch'ien-lung Porcelain Ware from the Ch'ing Dynasty in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1986, no. 131; and a pair of hu-shaped vase with multi-coloured ground, illustrated by John Ayers, Chinese Ceramics in the Baur Collection, vol. 2, Geneva, 1999, pls. 238 and 239.
