In May 2001 the Desaru shipwreck was discovered by Sten Sjostrand. The Desaru sank in the 1830s; took its name from the resort village of Desaru near where the wreck was found; just off the East coast of Johor in the Peninsular Malaysia. The quantity of these beautiful pieces of blue and white porcelain do not compare to those found on other well known shipwrecks; such as the Diana and Tek Sing. Although amongst the cargo of Chinese ceramics were over 50,000 soup spoons unmatched with bowls; finely crafted Yixing teapots; stoneware and other items which were typically used throughout Southeast Asia during this period. The Desaru shipwreck was found one metre below the seabed; twenty metres below sea level. In 2003 the shipwreck was fullly excavated
