Another Hoi-An Hoard shipwreck sunken treasure I picked up and am SOOO excited to share here!

This pear shaped ~3" tall "water dropper" is in Very good condition for being under the Dragon Sea since about 1490! Excavated in the late 1990s this is from the Butterfield's lots put up in 2000 and then again at Turner Auctions in about 2010. The Vietnames government took what they wanted, the international museums got theirs and the rest are going around the world. That said, they're not making more, and these little pear shaped guys are few and far between selling for about $450 EUR when they can be found for sale.

These were excavated at great peril during typhoon season and have survived for over 500 years, plus transport around the world and through a couple of auctions and life in storage.

I offer this at an accessible price due mostly to the less than perfect condition - retains the salvage label from SAGA.
