Working in the waters off the town of Ca Mau, Vietnam, fishermen discovered this remarkable cargo by accident, in 1998. The unknown ship sank as the result of a fire, somewhere between 1723 and 1735, whilst carrying Qing dynasty porcelain destined for the wealthy markets in Europe and the Far East. The finely-patterned blue and white designs of this era are widely recognised as some of the most beautiful ever made, and fetch very high prices at auction. It is far superior to anything that could be produced in the West at the time.

These items recovered from the sea are much more reasonably priced, and in remarkable condition, but we must point out that they have been underwater for over 250 years (testament to the skill of the craftsmen who made them).

Blue and white porcelain with Batavian brown underside, featuring a proliferation of flowering plants and two birds flying above.

Saucer diameter 4.5", bowl diameter 2.75".

Porcelain

Porcelain originated in China around 2,000 years ago, and requires firing at very high temperatures. Porcelain doesn’t require glazing in order to be impermeable to liquids, a key advantage in the manufacture of tableware.
