The present vase is unusually small, as most recorded teadust-glazed vases with the pronounced compressed globular lower body are over 30 cm. high. Examples of these larger vases are illustrated by R. Kerr, Chinese Ceramics, Porcelain of the Qing Dynasty, 1644-1911, London, 1986, no. 25; and by R. Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, London, 1994, vol. 2, no. 936.
