A famille-rose octagonal bowl, Daoguang Period (1782-1850).

The exterior of the bowl is decorated with children flying kites and practicing archery; the interior with a plain turquoise glaze.

Famille-rose enamels, predominently pink and purple in tone, were first developped in the early years of the 18th Century, possibly around 1720, in the last years of the reign of Kangxi, the third Qing Emperor(1622-1722).

They were subsequently much copied by European porcelain manufacturers.
