A rare 15th Century Vietnamese pottery dish from the Hoi An Shipwreck. Decorated in Blue and White with a prawn among aquatic plants. There were very few dishes decorated with prawns on the Hoi An Hoard Shipwreck. The rim of the dish has the glaze wiped clean to expose the biscuit body. This was done because these moulded dishes were fired face to face, so the unglazed rims would touch one another in the Kiln, had there been Glaze on the Rims they would has become stuck together.
