Description

In the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), imperial patronage and a growing urban population encouraged consumption of luxury goods and local craftmanship. Luxury items became more affordable to larger parts of the society, including women, merchants, and literati in nonofficial positions. This miniature porcelain vase with famille rose overglaze enamel decoration illustrates some of the highest technical accomplishments in Qing porcelain production.
