The majority of the peach shaped wine pots from the Kangxi period in China were aubergine and turquoise blue in color, rarely do you find a red glazed example. For a similar peach shaped wine pot please see Metropolitan Museum of Art (79.2.66), and one sold at Christie's, New York in September 16, 2010, Lot 1395. This shape was later adopted by the Europeans and created for export in patterned decoration.
