Notes on Chinese Famille-Rose PorcelainNotes on Chinese Famille-Rose Porcelain
Famille-rose enamels were first introduced during the Kangxi period (1662-1722) on Imperial wares. The best quality famille-rose export wares date from the Yongzheng period (1723-1735). At this time the enamels tended to be soft and translucent, and the drawing very fine.

We recommend the following books:
-Beurdelay, Michael, Porcelain of the East India Companies (London, 1962)
-Sargent, William, Treasures of Chinese Export Ceramics from the Peabody Essex Museum Salem (2012)
