The Ca Mau shipwreck was discovered in 1998 by two Vietnamese fisherman in the South China sea in the area of Ca Mau. The junk had set sail for a 90 mile journey south of Canton (now known as Guangzhou) to Batavia (now Jakarta); when a fire broke out in the kitchen causing the ship to sink. After  280 years the junk was discovered; although it took two years to fully recover all the cargo due to bad weather conditions. The cargo consisted of a total of 76;000 pieces including tea bowls; saucers; and dishes; some of which had a brown finish; although the majority of the porelain was blue and white. All the Chinese Imperial porcelain was produced in the kilns of Jingdezhen. Complete with original Ca Mau Cargo inventory numbers (stickers). This piece has been offically recorded and auctioned at Sotheby's in Amsterdan; in January 2007 official stickers are affixed
