It is rare to find this pattern painted on a vase, as it is more usually seen on bowls and dishes. A bowl with this pattern in the British Museum is illustrated by S. Jenyns, Later Chinese Porcelain, London, 1951, pl. CXII (1), where the author describes the mark as being in Mongolian script, and reading 'Baragon Tumed', identifying it as "part of a service made for a granddaughter of Tao Kuang who married a Mongolian prince of the Tumed Banner." The author further notes, p. 72, that the set was made at the Imperial factories to celebrate the marriage. A pair of bowls and dishes of this pattern was sold in these rooms, 22 March 2007, lot 400.
