Similar vessels are in prominent museum collections including one excavated in 1975 at Shancunling, Sanmenxia, Henan, and now in the Henan Provincial Museum, illustrated in Zhongguo qingtongqi quanji, vol. 8, Beijing, 1995, pl. 143l; in the Shanghai Museum, illustrated in Shanghai Bowuguan cang qingtongqi, Shanghai, 1964, pl. 91; in The Art Institute of Chicago, illustrated by C.F.

In her discussion of a hu with similar decorative bands and copper inlay, no. 50, Eastern Zhou Ritual Bronzes from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections, Arthur M. Sackler Foundation, 1995, pp. 278-80, the author, Jenny So, suggests that the hu, the similarly decorated bianhu in the Art Institute of Chicago, fig. 50.3, and another hu, ibid., no. 44, as well as other vessels of the same period with copper inlay might have "belonged to the same workshop tradition, most likely a centrally located one, as indicated by the Sanmenxia finds".
