Item Details



Now for sale is a set of blue and white cup and dish, with Christies' Label of Nanking Cargo sale, both cup and dish are decorated with pine tree and rocks.

The "Nanking cargo" is the modern name given to the porcelain cargo of what we now know to be the Geldermalsen, a huge transport ship belonging to the Dutch East India company (VOC). The Geldermalsen was built in 1746 in Middelburg (Southern Holland) and measured an enormous 1,150 metric tons. It was a trading vessel used to transport porcelain and other goods from the far east to European markets. It was fully loaded en-route from Canton in southern China to Europe, in December 1751. Approximately one month later on 3rd January 1752, the ship hit a reef near modern Singapore, capsizing and killing most of the 112 crew. The cargo remained undiscovered until 1986, when Michael Hatcher, famous treasure hunter, discovered the wreck and removed the entire cargo, later selling it at Christies. The auction attracted great publicity in 1986, where much of the near 200,000 porcelain stash was sold. It is now very hard to obtain legitimate Nanking cargo pieces on the market. ArtAncient Limited has acquired a private collection of Nanking pieces, with official Christies tags and purchased by the previous collector personally in Amsterdam, 1986. We will be offering select pieces from this collection for sale online. Since the ratifications of the UNESCO (2001) convention, cooperative ventures between South East Asian countries and salvage companies have been stymied, with the removal of shipwreck cargo (for which Hatcher was roundly criticised in 1986), being prohibited. Hence, well provenanced antique Shipwreck Ceramics are no longer appearing freshly on the market.
