No other Qianlong vase of this pattern appears to be published.
It is unusual to find Qianlong vases in underglaze-red so freely and naturally drawn. Compare with an equally finely pencilled copper-red decorated 'monk's cap' ewer and cover in the Metropolitan Museum of Art decorated with a lotus scroll illustrated in Sekai Toji Zenshu, vol. 15, Tokyo, 1983, pl. 90; to a double-gourd vase with a more formal lotus scroll offered at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 1 November 1994, lot 179; and to a meiping with a composite floral scroll sold in these Rooms 2 May 1994, lot 659.
