Antiques recovered from shipwrecks in Ca Mau.

A museum official of Ca Mau province announced that nearly 86,000 antiques recovered from shipwrecks in Ca Mau sea area would be sold by auction.

Mr Le Cong Uan, director of the Ca Mau provincial Museum said on April 29 that the antiques to be sold date back to the 1723-1735 period belonging to the Qing dynasty of China. These antiques are mainly bowls, plates, jars and statues. They are believed to be made in Jiangxi, Fujian and Guangdong provinces of China.

Mr Uan added that many antiques seem to be very new although they have lain on the seabed for more than 250 years. The province is completing lists of the antiques before May 15 in preparation for auctions.

A Vietnamese national in the United States, a Dutch company and a Vietnamese company are expected to buy the antiques.

Mr Uan revealed that the museum is keeping about 140,000 antiques, including 61,000 recovered from shipwrecks in July and August 1998.
