The decorative motifs on this lot are characteristic of Western Zhou vessels in the way they 'dissolve' into disparate parts, and in the use of wavelike bands seen on the main and lower registers.
Compare the closely related vessel in Gems of China's Cultural Relics, Beijing, 1997, no. 66, unearthed in 1997 from Xinzheng City, Henan province. Other similar vessels, but with much higher relief decoration, include one from the National Palace Museum illustrated by Wen C. Fong and J. Watt in the Catalogue of the exhibition, Possessing the Past, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 19 March - 19 May 1996, p. 79, pl. 42; and another, from the History Museum, China, in Zhongguo Meishu Quanji; Diaosu Bian (The Great Treasury of Chinese Fine Arts; Sculpture), Beijing, 1988, vol. 1, p. 94.
