shipwreck ceramics
by: peter

Hi Jim,
It is difficult to say more than that they are probably shipwreck ceramics. Glaze and decoration are completely gone.
The shape and height of the box makes it highly unlikely that it is Chinese. The bottom and scratch signs are not typical Chinese either.

I would assume that they are possibly Southeast Asian items. Vietnam and Thailand are known to have made and shipped considerable amounts of ceramics at an early time, hundreds of years ago, some even looking similar to early Chinese ceramics.
