It is extremely unusual to find a wall vase shaped after a brushpot and no similar example seems to be published.
Porcelains with shaped panels, like windows, decorated with figural or landscape scenes are typical of the Qianlong period, although the style first seems to have been developed during the Yongzheng period. Compare for example a brushpot in the Palace Museum Beijing enameled in grisaille on two sides with scholars in a mountainous landscape and with two famille-rose panels of flower sprays in ‘boneless?style, illustrated in Porcelains with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration ?The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Vol. 39, Hong Kong, 1999, cat.no.53.
For examples of porcelains decorated similarly with shaped panels of landscapes and figures on coloured grounds and bearing a similar blue and white six-character seal mark on a turquoise-ground, see for example a teapot and a vase in the Palace Museum Beijing, ibid pl. 108 and 103.
