Details
The Desaru shipwreck was discovered by Sten Sjostrand in May 2001, lying of the Malaysian coast at a depth of 60 feet. Buried in thick silt, its porcelain cargo had been protected for over 170 years. Sten has discovered nine shipwrecks, and works very closely with the Malaysian government during each archaeological excavation. He is a highly respected expert on maritime archaeology and South East Asian ceramics. The unidentified wreck has been Desaru, after the village nearby. She is thought to have been sailing to the port of Malacca, and there is some evidence of fire, which may indicate the involvement of pirates - who were prevalent at the time - in her sinking. A merchant's seal was found with the porcelain, and it is thought he may have been taking the stock to set up his own shop. Most of the porcelain was made in Jingdezhen and Yixing, both famed for their high quality.

This is a high quality bowl from Jingdezhen, decorated in scrolls of lotus (standing for purity) flowers and lingzhi.

Diameter 6". Accompanied with certificate of authenticity.

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.
