No other comparable vase appears to have been published. However, the application of a dragon to the neck or shoulder of a vase, usually a bottle vase, appears to have been a design concept of the Kangxi period. See three smaller famille verte-decorated vases of different bottle shape illustrated by E. Zimmermann, Chinesisches Porzellan, Leipzig, 1923, vol. II, pl. 110 (top). A later version of this type in monochrome can be seen in the Yongzheng-marked globular bottle vase covered overall with a coral glaze from the collection of S.D. Winkworth included in the International Exhibition of Chinese Art, London, 1935-36, no. 2725 and later sold in our London rooms, 6 December 1993, lot 97.
