A nearly identical Yongzheng example is in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Kangxi, Yongzheng, Qianlong, Hong Kong, 1989, p. 276, no. 105. A further example is also be found in the National Palace Museum, Taipei (acquisition no. zhong-ci-000325-N000000000). Vases of this form, design and glaze also continued to be made during the Qianlong period, such as the Qianlong-marked example formerly in the W. W. Winkworth and Robert Chang collections, sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 27 May 2008, lot 1590.
The form and decorative motifs on this vase originated from Western Zhou bronzes such as the examples illustrated by W. Watson, Ancient Chinese Bronzes, nos. 52 and 53. During the Qing dynasty this design was appropriated onto various media such as porcelain, jade and enamel wares. Refer for example to a champleve and gilt-bronze vase dating to the Qianlong period, enamelled with the same archaisitic scrolling design, sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 29 May 2013, lot 2068.
