This jar shows typical floral decorations from central Vietnam, made by pressing large pattern molds onto the soft clay. Jars with similar designs were recovered from the Pandanan, a 15th- century shipwreck off the coast of Palawan.
15th-century Vietnamese ceramics reflect the country’s great historical and cultural divide. Dai Viet in the north showed strong Chinese influence owing to long subjugation by its northern neighbors, while the kingdom of Vijaya in Central Vietnam had strong Indic influence from Angkor in Cambodia.
