Teadust-glazed double-gourd vases are well known, although no other vase of this type with the addition of silver and gilt decoration has been recorded. A related Qianlong-marked teadust-glazed candlestick of broader double-gourd form painted with gilt and silver floral scrolls and with the addition of enamels, is in the Qing court collection, Beijing, illustrated in Monochrome Porcelain, The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 1999, pl. 249. Another close comparison is a gilt-decorated hexagonal vase with a Jingde mark, dated to the Qianlong period, in the British Museum, illustrated by S. Vainker, Chinese Pottery and Porcelain, London, 1991, p. 208, pl. 160.
Cf. slightly larger Qianlong-marked teadust vases of this shape, one exhibited in Qing Imperial Porcelain, Nanjing Museum and The Art Gallery, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 1995, illustrated in the Catalogue, no. 70; one illustrated in The Tsui Museum of Art, Chinese Ceramics IV, Hong Kong, 1995, no. 46; and another illustrated by R. Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, vol. 2, London, 1994, no. 938.
