LARGE Sisatchanalai celadon dish Ser. No. RN-108

This totally intact celadon dish was recovered from the Royal Nanhai (AD. 1460) shipwreck and is therefore about 555 years old. The dating of the wreck site (and the ship's cargo) was based on an carbon 14 date on the ships timber and by cross-referring the ceramic cargo to other datable shipwreck sites. The dish is masterly decorated with incised lotus flowers (in profile) on the cavetto and vertical striations on the reverse. This motif is very RARE in the Royal Nanhai cargo. The base shows a clear tubular scar.  (This scar and the re-oxidizing color is yet another provenance factor which prove its ancient manufacturing) The glaze covering is thick and smooth throughout. Made at the Sisatchanalai kilns, which were operated by experience celadon potters from Longquan in China. The dish is indeed an important historical artifact and also one of the best recovered from the wreck site.

Sten has spent more than forty years in Southeast Asia designing and engineering various marine structures. His interest in Asia's pottery and porcelain eventually lead to his search and excavation of numbers of ancient shipwrecks. As a championship sailor Sten has extensive knowledge and interest in ancient maritime trade, ships designs and construction. It is these interests and gained knowledge that is the base for all his books and extensive lecturing.

Sten's company; Nanhai Marine Archaeology Sdn. Bhd. works with Malaysia's Department of Museums and Antiquities and can therefore offer legally excavated artifacts from these shipwrecks.

In addition to working with recovering artifacts, Sten has located number of ancient kiln sites in Thailand and in China were his shipwreck ceramics was made centuries ago. He is therefore able to offer absolute provenance on all ceramics sold via Nanhai Marine Archaeology Sdn. Bhd. and, with good conscience sign every Certificate of Authenticity supplied with the artifacts.

The maritime archaeology of Sten Sjostrand has led to major advances in the study of Asian trade and trade ceramics in Southeast Asia.  His meticulous documentation of a series of nine shipwrecks from the 11th to 19th centuries reveals the early dominance of Chinese trade ceramics, a subsequent loss of the Chinese monopoly in the late 14th century when Southeast Asian ceramics entered the market, the basic parameters of the Ming gap shortages of the 14th-15th centuries, and a resurgence of Chinese wares in the 16th and 17th centuries.  Just as important, Sjostrand freely shares the information from his discoveries.  Researchers are welcome at his headquarters where he documents his finds and patiently answers the queries of others.  A lifetime’s experience with the sea and sailing allows Sjostrand to bring new understanding to ancient ship construction, and his voluminous reading allows him to set the ships and their cargoes in historical perspective.
