NOTE: AS OF TODAY, 5 BUYERS ARE WATCHING THIS ITEM. I WILL UPDATE AS THE NUMBER RISES OR FALLS, THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST. Chinese White Porcelain Bowl Vung Tau shipwreck Porcelain from 1690 id no HC90-5-245-5-245.
Bowl sits on a round foot ring, spreading sides, a straight rim with a partially glazed base. Originally freely painted branches with leaves in iron-red and circular patches of green enamel. The enamel and iron-red have deteriorated due to the long immersion in the sea, leaving nothing but a few traces of dark splotches. Round the foot ring is written in black with a permanent marker; "HC90-5-245-5-245". On this bowl the original Christie's "Vung Tau Cargo" sales label is missing, but all my research has lead me believe this is a genuine Vung Tau piece.Please use your best judgement to make you purchasing decision, as I did. Height 5.81cm (2.625 inch), diameter of rim 13.13cm (5.25 inch), diameter of foot ring 5cm (2.0 inch), weight 250 grams 9.0 ounce oz. REGARDING ITEM DESCRIPTIONS: PLEASE READ.
