Caparisoned horses were a popular representation amongst existing jade carvings of horses. Such representation drew closer parallel to ancient tomb models made of ceramic or stone.
A near identical Yuan-Ming dynasty jade horse from the collection of Victor Shaw was illustrated in James C.Y Watt, Chinese Jades from Han to Ch'ing, The Asia Society, New York, 1980, p. 83, pl. 66. Another closely related jade horse, dated to Yuan dynasty or later, was included in the exhibition catalogue Chinese Jade Animals, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, 1996, p. 152, cat. no. 134. See also a similar Ming-dynasty example from the collection of Dr S.Y. Kwan, illustrated in Chan Lai Pik, Chinese Jades: The Dr S.Y. Kwan Collection, Hong Kong, 2012, pl. 63.
