Medieval Shipwreck Salvaged Hoi An Hoard Peony Plate - 1450 Ad For Sale

Medieval Shipwreck Salvaged Hoi An Hoard Peony Plate - 1450 Ad

A beautiful, largeMedieval Ming dynasty era plate, officially recorded andfrom the famous Hoi Anhoardand dating to the mid 15th Century A.D.

This MingDynastyartifact, somewhere between a plate and bowl in form, was likely used for serving andrepresents one of the most desirable ceramic types known from the Hoi An wreck. Of Vietnamese stoneware, thelarge, heavy plate is beautifully and confidently paintedin blue on white under a thin glaze.The inner surface is decorated with astriking blossoming peony flower, depicted amongst scrolling leaves. The sloping surface, or cavetto, is decorated with interspersed flower heads and double-leaf sprays. The exterior surface is decorated with upright lappets (decorative folds), containing swirled pendants. The base of the vessel is left unglazed and adorned with cafe au lait slip.

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 can now be found on display in the worlds top museums, including the Ashmolean and the British museum.

Diameter:9 1/2inches.
