Yellow jade vases are extremely rare due to the scarcity of the material and they appear to have found particular favour with the court during the 18th century. Three yellow jade vases in the Palace Musuem Collection include one with very similar scroll handles and finial illustrated in Jadeware (III), The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 1995, p. 181, no. 148 and two examples illustrated in Zhongguo Meishu Quanji, vol. 9, Jade, Beijing, 1986, pp. 186-187, nos. 316-317. A yellow jade vase of very similar form to the present example from the Harry Weinrebe Collection was exhibited by Messrs. S. Marchant & Son, Eighteenth Anniversary Exhibition of Chinese Jades from the Han to the Qing, p. 128, no. 109 and is included in the present sale, lot 3636. A yellow jade double vase group in the National Palace Museum, Taipei is illustrated in Masterworks of Chinese Jade in the National Palace Museum - Supplement, Japan, 1973, no. 33.
