Chinese Tek Sing Cargo Blue & White Plate Antique c.1822
This blue and white Chinese plate was part of those salvaged in 1999 from the Tek Sing cargo which sank on 6th February 1822. The great loss of life caused by the sinking has made it an infamous event and this is a lovely example of the type of cargo is was carrying at the time.
Please see images but it is offered in good original condition. There is some wear to the glaze due to being underwater for so long.
