The form of the pendant and the workmanship of the metal sides bear a strong correlation to a gold openwork 'duck and lotus' pendant excavated from a tomb in Wu County, Jiangsu province, and illustrated in Zhou Fan and Kao Cunming, Zhongguo lidai funü zhuangshi [Decorative Clothing and Accessories of Chinese Women throughout History], Hong Kong, 1988, pl. 398. The style of the makaras, themselves, closely resemble the makaras woven into a 13th century lampa textile in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, included in the exhibition The World of Khubilai Khan: Chinese art in the Yuan Dynasty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2010, cat. no. 41.
