Chinese porcelain blue and white drum-shaped box and cover painted with an eagle among plants
4.9cm diameter
This is one of several pieces in our web site dated 1640s, salvaged from a wreck by Michael Hatcher in the early 1980s and sold through Christie's Amsterdam. In all the wreck pieces the glazes bear some signs of minor degradation from immersion in seawater, and all the shapes are rare, some unknown before their salvage
