No other vase of this very rare form appears to have been published, although vessels potted with a similar broad base from the Qianlong period are known. Compare a teapot with similar wide base and a constricted neck raised from the tapered body, and a doucai vase of double-gourd shape with a truncated base, both in the Chang Foundation, illustrated by J. Spencer, Selected Chinese Ceramics from Han to Qing Dynasties, 1990, nos. 160 and 162, respectively.
The shape of the present vase is closely related to a Kangxi vessel of 'horse-hoof' shape with sloping sides raised to straight mouth rims and covered in a clair-de-lune glaze, in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated Kangxi Yongzheng Qianlong, p. 154, no. 137.
