The present vase is unusual for the floral diaper ground of the body while the stylised taotie is a characteristic example of the Qing interpretation of an archaic design. Although the form derives from the archaic bronze fanggu of the Shang dynasty (16th century-c.1050 BC), the decorative bands firmly place it in the Qing tradition. For a larger white jade fanggu of more slender proportions and flanked with a pair of ringed lingzhi handles, but carved with a geometric stylisation of archaistic designs, see one sold at Christie's New York, 15th September 2009, lot 151; and another, but of octagonal section and ringed bat handles, sold in our New York rooms, 18th October 1990, lot 326.
