Chinese Famille Rose

Chinese famille rose (known in Chinese as fencai) or ruancai, lit. 'soft colours' or 'pale colours', and later as Yangcai, lit. 'foreign colours' was introduced late in the reign of the Kangxi Emperor (1661-1722), possibly around 1720. It is very much associated with the Qianlong reign in which it reached its zenith and has not since been surpassed. It used mainly pink or purple and remained popular throughout the 18th and the 19th centuries, also being widely adopted by European factories. Famille rose enamel ware allows a greater range of colour and tone than was previously possible, enabling the depiction of more complex images, including flowers, figures and insects.
