Lot of 8 pieces (4 one-handled teacups and 4 small saucers) of Chinese blue-on-white porcelain, Kangxi period. Cups 60-64 grams each, 2-1/4" tall and 2-1/4" in diameter; saucers 67-74 grams each and 3-14/" tall and 4" in diameter. This is a perfectly matched set in top quality from a wreck that has yielded many such items since it was discovered and salvaged off Cape Ca Mau in 1998, all Kangxi porcelains that are identical to what was found on the Spanish 1715- and 1733-Fleet wrecks (intact specimens from those sites being exceedingly rare and popular). All 8 items in this set show two women watching a man climbing a tree above a house, the first specimens of this design we have offered (but shown on page 143 of the book about this wreck, a photocopy of which is provided for illustrative purposes), the blue color vivid under full glaze, no chips or cracks or encrustation. Recovered from: "Ca Mau wreck," sunk ca. 1723-35 off Vietnam
