Product Description

Three fine condition 14.5 cm (5 ¾ inches) diameter Chinese block-printed porcelain bowls that were recovered from the wreck of the Tek Sing Cargo Ship that sunk in 1822, off the coast of Indonesia.

The wreck was found and recovered in 1986. The three bowls are individually hand painted and decorated with the same block-print on the exterior, but vary in colour depth and definition. Condition is good on all three, considering it has spent nearly 160 years in the sea. There is a chip on the rim of one of the bowls. They have on the base the adhesive sticker of the Nagel Auction House and the lot number.

The Tek Sing was sailing from Amoy Harbour in China, to Batavia (now Jakarta) when it hit the Belvidere Reefs, in the Straits of Gaspar. It sank with the loss of 1800 lives.
The contents were originally auctioned by Nagel Auctions, in Stuttgart, in 2000.

Size: 14.5 x 5.5cm (5 ¾ x 2 1/8 inches)
