A famille rose vase decorated with blue cartouches upon a white ground, each set with floral motifs.

Famille rose, ‘the pink family’, was first introduced to the genre of Chinese ceramics in the first quarter of the 17th century. The palette of soft pinks, yellows and greens on a white, clean background was largely influenced by a European (more specifically French) taste. The Macaron-like shades of the famille rose alined neatly with the mode of the Rococo, fashionable in France at the time. Contrary to the famille verte palette of the previous era, famille rose designs could be fired at a lower temperature, allowing for softer shades to survive the firing process.

This vase is of conservative taste with elegant features and muted colours. While its milky white background is dominant, the colourful central panels are the focal point of the object.
