A Tale of Three Cities - Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and Export of Silk Products in the Ming and Qing Dynasties

With descriptions in Chinese, Portuguese and English, this catalogue contains a rich variety of pictures and text to introduce the flourishing maritime trade in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area during the Ming and Qing dynasties and in contemporary times. As an important stronghold of the Maritime Silk Road, the Greater Bay Area has always been a hub of maritime trade between China and foreign countries and a meeting point between Eastern and Western civilisations. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, when the East and West sea routes were opened up, silk became an important commodity to be exported to all parts of the world through the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The export of silk products was a testament to the glory of the handicraft industry in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao and the progress of globalisation of trade. Today, the art of silk embroidery is still being passed down and developed, playing a positive role in shaping and enriching the cultural connotations of the Greater Bay Area and enhancing its cultural soft power. The catalogue A Tale of Three Cities: Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area & Export of Silk Products in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is divided into four sections, namely “The Greater Bay Area”, “Export Silk”, “The Changing World” and “The Greater Bay Area Today”. It introduces the golden era of silk trade between China and foreign countries in the Ming and Qing dynasties through maps, paintings, documents, porcelain, silk fabrics, clothing, furniture, coins, etc.
