Meaning “the pink family”,  famille-rose enamels were first introduced around the end of the 1720’s for use on porcelain.

The best quality famille-rose export wares date from the Yongzheng period (1723-1735). The majority of the enamels is opaque or semi-opaque and does not flow when fired. The palette takes its name from a rose-colored enamel which makes up a characteristic color in the palette. Other significant colors in this palette are opaque yellow and opaque white.

The palette seems to have been developed with influence from European taste and demand and with technology imported via Jesuits working within the Imperial palace in Beijing.
