No other similar parcel-gilt jar appears to be published, but a plain silver jar and cover of this shape from the Hejiacun hoard is shown in a line drawing illustrated by Qi Dongfang, Tangdai jin yin qi yan jiu (Research on Tang gold and silver), Bejing, 1999, p. 100, fig. 1-280. The pleasing globular shape of these silver jars is more usually found in ceramic examples of Tang date, such as the sancai-glazed pottery jar and cover, the jar raised on a spreading foot, illustrated by Osvald Sirén, Kinas Konst under Tre Artusenden, Stockholm, 1942, p. 188, fig. 209; and another sancai-glazed pottery jar and cover illustrated in the catalogue for the exhibition, Zui to no bijutsu, Osaka Municipal Art Museum, 1976, p. 8, no. 1:25. Jars of this shape are often referred to as 'apple' jars. Another sancai-glazed pottery jar and cover of this shape, in the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Bernat, is illustrated in the exhibition catalogue, The Arts of the T'ang Dynasty, Oriental Ceramic Society, London, 1955, pl. 7b, no. 135. This jar is raised on an integral stand, but one can see that it has a circular foot. A Xingyao jar and cover, also in the Kempe Collection, illustrated by Bo Gyllensvärd in the exhibition catalogue, Chinese Gold and Silver and Porcelain, Asia House Gallery, New York, 1971, p. 92, no. 79, has the same shape, a low foot, and is incised on the sides with four large petals.
