In its glazing this vase was made to imitate one of the celebrated wares of the Song dynasty, 'Ge' ware, while its form derives from archaic bronze prototypes. The combination of a precious glaze and ancient form suggests a deep appreciation and respect for the past, together with the want for its preservation.

It is rare to find Yongzheng vases of this type, although a vase of the same size and form, but covered with a teadust glaze, in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, in included in the Illustrated Catalogue of Ch'ing Dynasty Porcelain in the National Palace Museum, vol. I, Tokyo, 1980, pl. 152. For a Qianlong example with a Guan-type glaze, see one sold in our London rooms, 1st/2nd April 1974, lot 254.

For the inspiration of the form of this vase, see the hu excavated from a Western Han tomb date before 179BC at Qianping, Yichang, Hubei province, illustrated in Kaogu xuebao, 1976, no. 2, p. 124, fig. 12.
