Officially Recorded & Excavated Hoi An Ming Brush Pot For Sale

Officially Recorded & Excavated Hoi An Ming Brush Pot

ArtAncient Ltd. are pleased to have acquired a small number of brush pots from the famous Hoi An cargo, all genuine dating to China's Ming dynasty (approx 1400 AD) and all officially excavated with seals of authenticity.

The sale price is for one brush pot, similar to the ones photographed.

The MingDynastybrush pots areof Vietnamese origin, dating to approximately 1400 AD; a sea salvaged and officially recorded piecefrom the 'Hoi-An' Shipwreck. They are bulbous in form, with small areas of added blue on a white glaze.

These rare pieces have a wonderful, romantic provenance. They were excavated from the important Hoi-An shipwreck. The Hoi-An was a huge, overloaded trading ship that sank in the mid 15th Century, probably due to acatastrophic typhoon. The ship was carrying asubstantialcargo of High Quality Vietnamese Ming export porcelain. We know that the Hoi An wares were produced in Kilns near modern-day Hanoi and were probably bound for the European Market before the ship was cruelly destroyed and sunk 250 feet into the cold waters of the South China Sea. The fascinating story of the Hoi-An and its recovery has been made into a best-selling novel by Frank Pope, entitled Dragon Sea: A True Tale of Treasure, Archeology, and Greed Off the Coast of Vietnam.

In contrast to many unprovenanced Hoi An pieces on the market, these ceramics have been officially recorded by the Vietnamese authorities (VISAL), whose sticker sealis affixed to the bag containing the artifact. The recent ratification of the UNESCO convention by South East Asian countries will effectively put ahalt to all future shipwreck salvage operations. Consequently, legitimately recorded pieces such as the present example are finite in supply and currently represent a fantastic investment opportunity.

Height: sizes range form6/8 inch - 1 2/8 inches.

Condition: All unrestored without major cracks but with minor wear consistent with ocean burial.
