Lot 390, Auction 10/29/2018: Annamese Pottery Jarlet - Hoi An Shipwreck

Southeast Asia, modern day Vietnam, Annamese (sometimes Anamese), ca. 15th century CE. A round porcelain jarlet with white glaze and a natural scene in blue depicting a variety of trees within a raised border on the lid. The jarlet is sealed. These vessels were probably inspired by Chinese pottery workshops to the north, and they were exported widely. Size: 2.55" W x 1.9" H (6.5 cm x 4.8 cm)

This example comes from the Hoi An shipwreck, discovered by fishermen off the coast of central Vietnam in the South China Sea in the 1990s. In order to pay for the extraordinarily expensive excavation of the ship, the Vietnamese government had 90% of the over 250,000 intact pieces of pottery recovered sold at auction.

Condition: Intact, with fine craquelure on surface.

Provenance: private Meyerson collection, San Francisco, California, USA
