Intact porcelain plate with British East India Co. arms in gold. 639 grams, about 11-3/4" x 9-1/4". This piece is rare enough as a complete, undamaged porcelain plate from a shipwreck, but what makes it really important and desirable is the completely intact company coat-of-arms in the center in gleaming gold leaf and traces of red and blue paint under the glaze, the gold paint around the rim faded and worn in comparison. With original Christie's (March 1993) lot-sticker #456/2. Recovered from: Diana, sunk in 1817 off Malaysia
