Porcelain decorated in this type of underglaze dark brown has historically been called 'Batavia Brown' or "Capucijnergoed" ('Chicl-pea ware'. after the legume). Occasionally, a gold decoration has been painted on the brown glaze. The term famille rose was first coined by the 19th-century French author Albert Jacquemart, who distinguished between specific groups in his descriptions of Oriental ceramics.
