A famille rose vase of similar shape, and also of impressively large size (78.7 cm.), dated to the 18th century, Qianlong period, in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is illustrated by S.G. Valenstein, A Handbook of Chinese Ceramics, New York, 1989 ed., p. 267, pl. 276. Like the present vase, it is decorated on one side of the body with a shaped panel enclosing the Eight Daoist Immortals, with the addition of Xiwangmu descending on a phoenix from above. It, too, has scrolled dragon handles, but unlike the present vase it has additional figural panels on the neck, and the ground on which the panels are reserved is mille fleurs, not sgraffiato.
