Chinese Rose Medallion Porcelain

Famille Rose was developed in China in the early 18th century.  The introduction of white glazes allowed the color pink to emerge.  This type of porcelain is literally named for this pink color.  Most of the pieces we have on offer are 19th century.  The green pattern with figures in pavilions is known as Rose Medallion.  There are several variation to this pattern.  Most of it came to the West as export and a fair amount seems to have come from different Worlds’ Fairs that where popular for promoting trade and awareness.  Nearly all of these pieces are made by hand and painted by hand.  Something one rarely sees todays’ best porcelains.
