Chinese rose medallion pieces were exported to the United States in great numbers beginning in the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). Depicting figures in mandarin clothes or with other motifs painted inside a frame or medallion, this style was first made around 1850 to satisfy the high demand for imported china that started in Europe and eventually spread to the United States. It was extremely popular from 1830 to 1930, and it was through this exportation that the West learned to know and appreciate Chinese porcelain.
