Binh Thuan Shipwreck Story c1608 In March 2004, a small Cargo of Ming Dynasty porcelain was auctioned by Christies in Melbourne, Australia. The wreck was first discovered in early 2001 by local fishermen off the coast of Bin Thuan Province in Vietnam. The Vietnamese authorities soon got wind of the discovery and excavated the site in October 2002.It is believed that the Junk may have sunk after hitting a nearby reef, and VOC (Dutch East India Company) records state that a Junk belonging to Chinese merchant I Sin Ho had been lost in this area in 1608, on route to Johore on the Malay Peninsula. Although no conclusive evidence has been found, all the indications point to the Bin Thuan Wreck being the vessel of the unfortunate I Sin Ho. Made by hand in Fujian Province, The porcelain is often characterised by Kiln grit adhering to the base, and the free and spontaneous decoration which means that each piece is literally unique.
