Vietnam box shipwrecked

Select an image above to see more detail.


This piece is a very unique hand made porcelain box from the HOI AN HOARD (diameter 6cm). I selected this box for its beautiful design located in the centre, with a sailboat surrounded by plants and flowers in dark blue.

The box is very delicate and perfectly proportioned. This unique item belongs to a collection salvaged from a shipwreck found in the deep sea of Vietnam, so the box dates to the mid- to late-15th century.

The piece is in very good condition and the lid definitely belongs to the bottom part. As the pictures show, this is a genuine an legal piece from the HOI AN with the original inventory tag and unique number.
