Chinese Large Tek Sing Shipwreck Dish
Item Details
Description
19th century A.D. A broad white-glazed dish with blue arcaded pattern to the inner face, central calligraphic motif, blue symbols to the exterior. 987 grams, 28.5 cm wide (11 1/4 in.) Nagel auction, Stuttgart, Germany, November 2000. Official sticker attached to the base. The Tek Sing (True Star) wreck is one of the famous recovery stories of the 19th century. Sailing from the port of Xiamen (then known as Amoy) in February 1822 the vessel Tek Sing was bound for Jakarta, Indonesia laden with porcelain goods and 1600 Chinese emigrants. The captain decided to pass through the Gaspar Strait, between the Bangka-Belitung Islands, and ran aground on a reef. The vessel sank in about 100 feet of water. The next morning, February 7, an English East Indian captained by James Pearl, passing through the same waters, encountered debris and some survivors and managed to rescue about 190 of the latter.
