It is very rare to find a vase of this design covered in a white glaze. Compare the present vase with a very similar Yongzheng version with a pale blue glaze, illustrated in Selected Porcelain of the Flourishing Qing Dynasty at the Palace Museum, Forbidden City Publishing House, no. 62; and a Qianlong-marked vase with thinner ruyi-head handles covered also in a ru-type glaze from the Tokyo National Museum, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, Kodansha Series, vol. 1, no. 169.
