Rose Medallion china is a 19th and 20th Century Chinese Export Porcelain. Rose Medallion is hand-painted and has several unique identifying characteristics. It is a distinctive design with four or more panels of decoration around a central medallion that includes a bird or a peony. The panels show birds and people. The background is a design of tree peonies and leaves. The dominant colors are usually pastel pinks and greens and can also include red, blue, orange, yellow and gold. Typical pieces include vases, bowls, plates and other dining and food service items such as teapots, platters and tureens.
Dating Rose Medallion is fairly straight forward. If there is no mark on the underside base, the piece dates from 1840-1890. If marked "China" it is 1890-1915. "Made in China" dates the piece after 1915. If it says, "Made in Hong Kong" or has a mark with Chinese characters, these pieces are not considered antique because they are too modern.
