Over one hundred selected artifacts, including Canton porcelains, ivory carvings, silverware, Shiwan potteries, and export paintings are on display.  


In the 18th century, as the only gateway to connect the world, Guangzhou became the lead of commodity trade between China and the West, and attracted many talented craftsmen to gather here, making the city's craft industry usher in a new period.

Through the exhibition, visitors are able to learn about the development of Guangzhou's maritime trade in the Qing Dynasty, as well as the cultural exchanges with the West.
