It is extremely rare to find a bronze hu of this form with tall neck, and no other example appears to be published. The decoration, however, is well known on Eastern Zhou bronzes of the late Spring and Autumn period. J. So in Eastern Zhou Ritual Bronzes from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections, Arthur M. Sackler Foundation, 1995, pp. 244-7, illustrates several vessels with similar rope-twist borders, which she notes as representing nomadic influence, recalling the rope-slung containers carried by nomads on horseback or on foot. The author also illustrates, pp. 278-83, several late Eastern Zhou vessels decorated with similar registers of abstract curl patterns in low relief, as well as similar taotie masks suspending loose rings flanking the shoulders.
