Large gold-splashed bronze vases of this type are quite unusual. A similar tall (22¼ in.) vase of this shape, also with dragon handles, two ribs around the neck, a petal lappet band on the shoulder and raised decoration on the upper body including lion-mask bosses was included in the exhibition, Fine and Rare Chinese Works of Art and Ceramics, Roger Keverne, June 2001, no. 22. See, also, the related vase (27½ in. high) sold Sotheby's, New York, 1 June 1993, lot 430.
