    The present blue and white garlic-neck vase has been inspired in form and design by Ming Dynasty vases. Composite foliate scrolls with various blossoms, as well as linghzi fungus scrolls, decorated Yongle period vessels and would have set the example for the wide border around the body and neck of the present vase.

    Compare a blue and white double-gourd garlic-head two-handled vase, Qianlong mark and period, with a lotus scroll around the body and lingzhi fungus scroll around the garlic mouth, sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 8 April 2010, lot 1821.
