Extant flasks molded with this dancing figure vary in glaze color and in the forms of the neck and foot. A similarly designed sancai-glazed flask with a punched ground and floriform neck is in the collection of the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, illustrated in Beatrice Jansen, Chinese Ceramiek, The Hague, 1976, pl. 49. Another was excavated at Ganjing, Heyang County, and is now in the Heyang County Museum, shown in Chen Anli, ed., Zhonghua guo bao: Tang sancai juan, Xi'an, 1998, pl. 49. Compare also a green-glazed example, illustrated in R.L. Hobson, The Catalogue of the George Eumorfopoulos Collection of Chinese, Korean, and Persian Pottery and Porcelain, vol I, London, 1925, pl. 24, no. 162.
