Another closely related example, but of slightly smaller size and carved in the more usual manner to reveal the buff pottery body, is in the Freer Sackler Museum, Washington D.C., and illustrated in several books including, Freedom of Clay and Brush Through Seven Centuries in Northern China: Tz'u-Chou Type Wares, 960-1600 A.D., Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, 1980 cat. no. 14. The Freer Sackler vase is illustrated again along with another of this more common type sold at Christie's New York, 18th-19th March 2009, lot 508. For a further related vase of the same form and decoration but more roughly incised, see the example excavated from a Liao tomb in Liaoning province now preserved in the Liaoning Provincial Museum, illustrated in Zhongguo taoci quanji [Complete Series of Chinese Ceramics], vol. 9, Shanghai, 2000, pl. 3.
