In the mid 15th century a freighting junk loaded with fine Vietnamese pottery sank in an area of the South China Sea called the “Dragon’s Embrace.” Around 1994 local fishermen began finding pottery in their nets. Thus what has become known as the "Hoi An Hoard" was discovered. This blue and white porcelain jar was purchased as part of that hoard. However, there is no documentation to prove its provenance so I am selling this piece as from the period and country stated without a guarantee that it is from that famous hoard. Nonetheless, this is a beautiful specimen of very old Asian porcelain. This particular jar measures 6.7 cm across and 5 cm in height. It has a wonderful floral design on the lid with a plain body.
