I believe you'd all agree with me that the main difference between these 2 vases are their size and shape. However, which is the more common of the 2 vases?

Please take a moment to think about it before you scroll down for the answer:)

While both are well-painted famille rose vases from the Ming Guo period, the smaller one on the left, V1, is harder to replicate due to its unique shape. This makes it stand out when compared to the bigger vase on the right, V2. However, human figures are the hardest to draw, and the artist who painted V2 did a decent job.
