This porcelain hat stand is decorated in a style of overglaze enameling known as "famille rose." Sometimes referred to as "yangcai" or "foreign colors," the famille rose style emerged during the 18th century and employs a pastel palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favors roses and pinks.

Accented by quatrefoil cutouts, this six-sided hat stand is decorated with the Sānxīng (三星), the Three Star Gods of health, wealth, and longevity. Known respectively as Fú Lù Shòu (福祿壽), the three figures are folk deities that embody prominent star constellations and offer blessings for a good life. Hat stands such as this were traditionally used to display a man's cap while it wasn't being worn.
