Making famille rose ceramic plaque painting is more difficult than traditional paper painting, because it has to be fired twice in the kiln and there are risks of cracking or deforming. However, the colour enamels used in ceramic plaque painting are more stable and the texture is stronger. Ceramic plaque painting has more layering and three-dimensional sense than paper painting. Moreover, it can be permanently preserved, avoiding insect bites and weathering.

This work is painted in pastel with the traditional Chinese theme of blessing and prosperity, and the skilful workmanship and neat composition are sure to resonate with the collector and make him perceive the good wishes of the painter.
