21 bids
14th-15th century AD. A glazed ceramic jar with basal ring, deep shoulder and raised rim, three small loops to the outer edge of the shoulder, panels of blue floral motifs to the outer face and rosette to the shoulder. 217 grams, 87mm (3 1/2"). From the property of a London gentleman; formerly in a UK collection, acquired in the 1990s. In the mid fifteenth century a freighting junk loaded with fine Vietnamese pottery sank in an area of the South China Sea called the “Dragon’s Embrace.” This vase is part of the shipwreck cargo recovered off the coast of Vietnam at Hoi An. The ceramics themselves were probably made in the area of Chu Dau. [No Reserve]
