Vases of this form covered in a blackish-brown glaze accented with splashes of russet-brown are very rare.
A slightly shorter vase of this form and type, but with more liberally applied russet-brown splashes, is in the Miyaoshi Kinenkan, Ashikaga and illustrated in Sekai toji zenshu, Japan, 1977, vol. 12, p. 244, pl. 246. A slightly taller vase of this form with similarly applied splashes is illustrated in Bijutsu shuban sa, 1961, pl. 47; and another in Sougen no bijutsu, Japan, 1978, p. 42, no. 202. See, also, the brown-glazed vase of this form, but lacking the russet-brown splashes in the collection of The Honolulu Academy of Arts, included in the exhibition, Chinese Ceramics from the Prehistoric Period through Ch'ien Lung, Los Angeles County Museum, 14 March - 27 April 1952, no. 203.
