From April 17 to 20, the Philadelphia Antiques Show will showcase a loan exhibit, "A Call to Arms: Chinese Armorial Porcelain for the British and American Markets, 1700–1850," an homage to renowned dealer Elinor Gordon (1918–2009), the specialist in Chinese Export porcelain who exhibited at the Philadelphia Antiques Show since its inception in 1962.

Ron Fuchs, curator of the Reeves Collection at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va., has selected 50 examples of armorial porcelain on loan from the Reeves collection, private collectors and museums.

Among the Reeves loans is a Hong bowl, painted with a scene of the bustling Chinese port of Guangzhou, purchased from Gordon.
