"SHIPWRECK TREASURES:
MING CERAMICS FROM THE PHILIPPINES,"

A LECTURE BY LARRY GOTUACO
May 16, 1999, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.



In March 1997, the government of the Philippines confiscated several boatloads of cargo recovered by fishermen from a shipwreck off the island of Busuanga in northern Palawan. The blue and white ceramics discovered in the cargo have been attributed to the middle Ming period of Hongzhi (1488 - 1505) and Zhengde (1506 - 1521). Larry Gotuaco, former President of the Oriental Ceramic Society of the Philippines and a collector of ceramics for more than twenty-five years, will give a lecture on these finds, over five-hundred of which he has personally seen, handled, and photographed. Different kinds of decoration and motifs will be discussed, as well as the size, quantity, and quality of the different shapes and forms. A presentation of over sixty slides will accompany the lecture in the CCC auditorium. Admission is free to CCC members; non-members $5.
