Catalogue Note

Finely carved white jade vases of this form and with high relief dragons clambering up the sides are rare, although a closely related example is illustrated in Stanley Charles Nott, A Catalogue of Rare Chinese Jade Carvings, Palm Beach, 1940, no. 4.  Compare also a slightly later example illustrated in Robert Kleiner, Chinese Jades from the Collection of Alan and Simone Hartman, Hong Kong, 1996, pl. 147.
