In the mid 15th century a freighting junk loaded with fine Vietnamese pottery sank in an area of the South China Sea called the “Dragon’s Embrace.” Around 1994 local fishermen began finding pottery in their nets. The Vietnamese Government determined that this was a significant find and engaged an archaeological salvage company to locate the ship and retrieve the cargo. Many thousands of pieces of pottery were found – in fact, the greatest recovery of sunken treasure of all time. Price is per each item, please state your preferred item while ordering.
