For a possible prototype for this hu, see the example inlaid in copper and gold with a similar dragon and lozenge pattern in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, illustrated by Ming S. Wilson, 'Archaic Chinese Bronzes in the Victoria and Albert Museum', Orientations, November 1993, p. 67, fig. 13. The same hu appears to be illustrated by W.P. Yetts in the Eumorfopoulos Collection Catalogue, London, 1924, vol. 1, pl. XXVII, no. A35.
