    Mughal style jade vessels were greatly admired by the Qing Court and the Qianlong Emperor in particular. See for example a similar lobed jade cup with an Imperial inscription in the Woolf Collection, London, illustrated by S.Howard Hansford in Chinese Carved Jades, London, 1968, pl.92. The popularity of this particular form is further demonstrated in extant examples in the Imperial collections in the Palace Museum, Beijing and the National Palace Museum, Taipei; see The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Jadeware (III), Hong Kong, 1995, no.233 and Teng Shu-p'ing, Exquisite Beauty - Islamic Jades, Taipei, 2007, pl.93. Another white jade lobed cup of similar form is in the collection of the British Museum, no.1952,0721.1.

    A similar pale green jade scalloped Mughal style cup sold at Christie's Hong Kong on 30 November 2011, lot 3266.
