Arfcatitmu tUi or MEN BA Â· Sunday, Sept. 29, 1974 miuniiiiiiiiiM^ This 'n That About Town MIRIM By MARY ALICE PEAKSON Mr. and Mrs. Euehlin D. Reeves of Providence, R.I., began collecting porcelains separately before they were married in 1941, and continued it virtually up lo their deaths in 1967, by which time the 2,000-pIus pieces they owned filled their own home and one next door which they bought for storage. The Reeveses gave the entire collection to Washington and Lee University at Lexington, Va., which has sent 125 pieces to the Arkansas Arts Center for an exhibition that began Thursday and will continue through Nov. 3. The items in the Arts Center exhibition are from the China trade. For about a hundred years starting in the early 1700s and continuing for a century, a thriving trade existed between China and the United States, and during that period Chinese artisans produced fine porcelains specifically for export, using as designs the drawings and paintings provided them by American traders as well as their own. Thus many of the pieces are decorated with American eagles, flags and the Great Seal, and with historical scenes like the signing of the Declaration of Independence (in which faces of the participants bear an unmistakable Oriental cast). One of the most valued pieces in the tolal collection is a large punch bowl, almost 200 years old, decorated w i t h pictures of 13 "hongs" or places of business. Foreigners in Canton were restricted to a single area along the P e a r l River and this area in time became a subject for decorating export porcelain. The Chinese also used religious motifs, taking Biblical sceneÂ» from the parables and incidents from the life of Christ. As export porcelain became popular, elaborate value schemes evolved. Thus an item with a plain ship was less priced than one with a flag. A ship with a flag and a dinghy in tow was more valuable than either, and if the dinghy had a crew and flag of its own, the piece was highly treasured. The Reeves Collection includes pieces from Meissen, Sev- res, Vienna, Worcester, Chelsea and other European porcelain makers, but it concentrates on the Chinese export porcelain, which will comprise all of the Arts Center's exhibit. Don't forget the date - Wednesday, Oct. 2 - from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the City Library. The Jujdor Civic League is doing it again. The subjects are active, the cards are beautiful, .the stationery and monogram paper is attractive, and they have added another attraction, a nice assortment of seasonal napkins for their annual Christmas Card party. So, don't miss this opportunity to get your Christmas cards and other supplies for all the up-coming festivities. Remember the proceeds- go to help the Washington C o u n t y School for Trainable Children. See you there!
