Compare the very similar vase illustrated in Gugong Buowuyuan Cang Ming Chu Qinghuaci (Early Ming Blue and White Ceramics in the Palace Museum Collection), vol. 2, Beijing, 2002, pp. 354-5, no. 190, which is dated to the Yongzheng period.
The shape and decoration of the present vase and the example in the Palace Museum collection are based on early fifteenth century prototypes, such as the Yongle vase illustrated ibid., vol. 1, pp. 44-5, no. 18. The Yongle example and the Yongzheng vases share a similar slender neck, while later versions have a wider neck and more bulbous profile. For a Qianlong example see the vase in the National Palace Museum, Taiwan, illustrated in Special Exhibition of K'ang-hsi, Yung-cheng and Ch'ien-Lung Porcelain, Taiwan, 1986, no. 72. See, also, the similar vase of smaller size (29.5 cm.) sold in these rooms, 17 September 2008, lot 24, which had the addition of a band of petal lappets below the scene.
