Known as a jizi ping (bottle in the shape of the character ji), the present lot closely resembles a kundika, a Buddhist holy water vessel. Only a small number of Longquan vessels of this form are known. A much larger example (48.2 cm high) in the Palace Museum, Beijing, is illustrated in Longquan of the World. Longquan Celadon and Globalization. Vol. II. State Vessels, The Palace Museum, Beijing, 2019, cat. no. 067. A 'Tobi Seiji' vessel of the same form with its accompanying stand was offered in these rooms, 18th March 2008, lot 102.
