It is rare to find a blue and white vase from this period potted with this dramatically waisted hu form. One blue and white vase of similar shape, dated to the Yongzheng period and also painted with floral scrolls in the Ming style, was exhibited at the Exhibition of Ming and Ch'ing Porcelain from the Collection of the T. Y. Chao Family Foundation, Hong Kong Museum of Art, 1978, Catalogue no. 85; and subsequently sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 18 November 1986, lot 84. See a later example of this shape on a Qianlong mark and period famille rose revolving vase at the Palace Museum in Beijing, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum - 39 - Porcelains with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration, pp. 174-175, pl. 155.
