An almost identical single and a related pair of vases are in the Taft Museum, (1995, pp. 584-585). Another single from the Garland and Morgan Collections once handled by our gallery is now in a private American collection. Others from the Salting Collection are in the Victoria & Albert Museum. This is the first set of this type that we have seen in 20 years or more.
