Chinese Shipwreck Porcelain
In April 1986 I attended the ‘Nanking Cargo’ sale at Christies Amsterdam, these beautiful pieces of blue and white porcelain immediately captured my imagination.
Subsequently there have been other shipwrecks recovered dating from the 15th to the 19th Century such as Vung Tau, Ca Mau, Diana, Hoi An, Hatcher, Tek Sing.
Each of these shipwrecks are like a time capsule producing some rare and unique pieces. The prices and conditions vary considerably but there is usually something to suit everyone’s taste.
I am constantly looking to introduce new pieces to my large collection.

I try to acquire pieces from private collections, quite often with emphasis on the unusual with interesting provenance.
