  • Fine potted Gu shape vase with underglaze blue scrolling flowers. Panels with flowers surrounding the base and spout.
  • The Vung Tau shipwreck was found in the South China Sea about 100 miles from Vung Tau, Vietnam. The wreck was a 'lorcha', a Chinese vessel with Portuguese influences that has been dated to about 1690. It was found by a fisherman who had picked up numerous pieces of porcelain from the wreck while fishing. Sverker Hallstrom identified the wreck and its cargo in 1990. Australian diver Michael Flecker took charge of the archaeological aspect of the excavation. An analysis of its cargo deduced that the ship was bound from China to Jakarta, Indonesia, where the porcelain would have been purchased by the Dutch East India Company for trans-shipment to Holland. 28.000 pieces were sold by Christie's Amsterdam in 1992. Originally part of lot 159 in this sale.
