This small porcelain bowl covered in a matte rose-colored enamel glaze was made by the imperial workshop during the Yongzheng era (1723-35). Yongzheng craftsmen expanded their repertoire by reviving monochrome wares and creating a new enamel ware in a pastel palette known as famille rose, based on European prototypes. Most red glazes in earlier Chinese ceramics were derived from iron or copper, and the color tended toward orange or brown. The Europeans introduced a red enamel color derived from colloidal gold that produced the distinctive rosy pigment seen here.
