Medieval 15th Century Ming Dynasty Hoi An Hoard Shipwreck Salvaged Bowl For Sale

Medieval 15th Century Ming Dynasty Hoi An Hoard Shipwreck Salvaged Bowl

A fascinating the famous Hoi An hoard.

The Vietnamese origin, dating to approximately 1400 AD; a sea salvaged and officially recorded piecefrom the 'Hoi-An' Shipwreck.

Thedeep bowl is ofbeautiful form, with ring base, flaring walls and slightly everted lip.Painted in blue on white, the piece exhibitinga lovely cream glaze throughout,the tondo (central reserved area) surrounded by a single line border.

This rare piece has a wonderful, romantic provenance. It was excavated from the important Hoi-An shipwreck. The Hoi-An was a huge, overloaded trading ship that sank in the mid 15th Century, probably due to acatastrophic typhoon. The ship was carrying asubstantialcargo of High Quality Vietnamese Ming export porcelain. We know that the Hoi An wares were produced in Kilns near modern-day Hanoi and were probably bound for the European Market before the ship was cruelly destroyed and sunk 250 feet into the cold waters of the South China Sea. The fascinating story of the Hoi-An and its recovery has been made into a best-selling novel by Frank Pope, entitled Dragon Sea: A True Tale of Treasure, Archeology, and Greed Off the Coast of Vietnam.

In contrast to many unprovenanced Hoi An pieces on the market, this ceramic has been officially recorded by the Vietnamese authorities (VISAL), whose sticker is affixed to the artifact. The recent ratification of the UNESCO convention by South East Asian countries will effectively put ahalt to all future shipwreck salvage operations. Consequently, legitimately recorded pieces such as the present example are finite in supply and currently represent a fantastic investment opportunity.

Ceramics from the Hoi An Hoard can now be found on display in the worlds top museums, including the Ashmolean and the British museum.

Height: 3 1/4 inches.
