Bands of long-tailed birds can be found on two he with similar bodies and legs illustrated by J. Rawson, Western Zhou Ritual Bronzes from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections, Washington DC and Cambridge, Massachusetts, vol. IIB, 1990, p. 675, fig. 114.2 (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) and fig. 114.3 (Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto). Both are dated Middle Western Zhou, and both have the handle issuing from a bovine mask, but neither has the rare decorative features of the crouching lion finial or the standing figure of a man of the present vessel. However, a human-form link joining loops on the cover and top of the handle can be seen on another four-legged he with duck's-head spout, dated to Western Zhou, excavated at Pingding Shan, Hebei province, and illustrated in Zhongguo Qingtongqi Quanji - Xi Zhou, vol. 6, p. 92, no. 94.
