During the 18th century, Europeans provided an eager market for Chinese export porcelain, especially the colorful and fanciful ware known as “famille rose.” Named for a palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favored roses and pinks, famille rose porcelain ware was crafted with the same technical virtuosity as imperial porcelain but designed for Western tastes.

Dated to the early 20th century, this pair of petite oval ginger jars is an exquisite example of intricate famille rose decoration. Contrasted by a crisp white field, a vignette of colorful floral arrangements adorns each jar, finely painted with minute details. The lavish scene includes a famille rose rouleau vase with peonies, a bouquet of spider chrysanthemums, a bulb bowl with daffodils, and a spray of irises on a rootwood pedestal. With its vibrant play of colors and delicate decoration, this pair is a lovely way to brighten any interior.
