    A pleasing and decorative 15th c. blue and white bowl with floral motifs from the Hoi An hoard (shipwreck cargo).  Vietnamese.  Circa 1450-1500.

    During the 15th century, off the Hoi An coast of Vietnam in the South China Sea, a trading vessel filled with ceramics vanished without a trace.  It was re-discovered by fishermen in the 1990s.  All pieces unique to the cargo were retained by Vietnamese museums for display.  The rest was sold at auction.
