This very rare vase is similar to a pair illustrated by J. Harrison-Hall, Ming Ceramics in the British Museum, London, 2001, p. 242, nos. 9:57 and 9:58. Another pair can be seen as part of a five-piece garniture in the Musée Guimet, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Great Collections, vol. 7, Tokyo/New York/San Francisco, 1981, pl. 66.
