Chinese famille rose porcelain wares in this 'legends & myths' or 'auspicious figures' pattern with calligraphy generally date from the second quarter of the 19th century Qing dynasty through earlier Republic periods, with a gradual degradation in quality in a few later pieces. However, your canister appears to be mainstream 3rd quarter, 20th century.
Here are some images of variations on the theme, including one with rose medallion surrounds from the third quarter of the 20th century, which is extremely rare according to one reference, 'The Canton Famille Rose Porcelains from the Alma Cleveland Porter Collection in the Peabody Museum of Salem' by Dr. John Quentin Feller (1982). The one with rose medallion borders is marked 'Made during the Xianfeng Reign of the Great Qing Dynasty' (Da Qing Xian feng nian zhi}), and probably of the period. Such a mark would be atypical on standard rose medallion.
