Carried by Daoist immortals, double-gourds were believed to contain elixirs of immortality. As such, vases in this form are closely associated with Daoism and reflect the Jiajing Emperor's devotion to the religion. A vase of this type is preserved in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (acc. no. 91.1.379). Another sold twice in our London rooms, on 17th December 1980, lot 634, and again on 5th December 1995, lot 406. For a variation of this vase with iron-red blossoms, see a pair in the British Museum, illustrated in Jessica Harrison-Hall, Catalogue of Late Yuan and Ming Ceramics in the British Museum, London, 2001, pls 9:88 and 9:89.
