In its decoration, the dynamic scene of dragons amidst clouds on bronze is a Xuande innovation; see a closely related example included in the Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong exhibition Arts from the Scholar's Studio, Fung Ping Shan Museum, Hong Kong, 1986, cat. no. 139. Its vigorous depth of casting and style is related to carved lacquer of the period. Compare also a censer of this type, with a Xuande reign mark and possibly of the period, included in the exhibition The Second Bronze Age. Later Chinese Metalwork, Sydney L. Moss Ltd., London, 1991, cat. no. 44.
