A pleasing and decorative 15th c. blue and white bowl with floral motifs from the Hoi An hoard (shipwreck cargo). Vietnamese. Circa 1450-1500.
During the 15th century, off the Hoi An coast of Vietnam in the South China Sea, a trading vessel filled with ceramics vanished without a trace. It was re-discovered by fishermen in the 1990s. All pieces unique to the cargo were retained by Vietnamese museums for display. The rest was sold at auction.
