Vessels of this unusual form derive from archaic bronze vessels of the Warring States (475-221BC) and Han (206BC-AD220) periods and appear to have been in great demand during the second half of the Qing dynasty.

LV, pictured together with a spinach green example; a spinach green jade censer in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, published in Ming Wilson, Chinese Jades, London, 2004, pl. 52; and another in the Palace Museum, Beijing, included in Chinese Jade Throughout the Ages.
