Song Shipwreck Porcelain Bowl | China, 12-13C


A blue and white porcelain bowl lifted from a sunken ship found in the Java Sea, Indonesia. The wide base and the sharp but slightly bulging shape are characteristic of the Southern Song Dynasty era of China.

In the latter half of the 12th century, a large-scale trade route was formed from the Indian Ocean to the South China Sea, and it seems that trading vessel were going around from the Southern Song towords Japan to the east, Indonesia to the south, the Middle East and Africa to the west.

Good condition with no chips or crack. Even if the dead shellfish and wisteria stick, it is still impressed by the appearance of the original shape as a bowl.
