Wanli Treasure Jewellery
NOW from £89.99
Wanli was a 17th century Portuguese carrack en route to Malacca from China, estimated to have sunk about 1625. There is evidence to indicate this was caused by an act of war, possibly during a clash with a Dutch warship. The wreck site, discovered in 2002, is located off the Terengganu coast and was found to contain a large quantity of highly valued and now extremely rare Kraak blue and white export porcelain. Intact pieces are worth a great deal, but inevitably much of the find was broken.
This jewellery is made from carefully selected shards bearing a decoration of peach flowers symbolising longevity, immortality, springtime and marriage - individually cut to shape and mounted in sterling silver. The pictures are representative but every piece is unique.
Pendants are supplied with 18" sterling silver snake chain.
Supplied with a certificate of provenance.
