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 bowl is from that famous find. It was also part of the original Butterfields auction of Hoi An pieces. The Butterfield's sticker is still on the piece and a matching numbered certificate is also included. This bowl measures 13.5 cm across and 6.5 cm in height (roughly).
