Salvage work is continuing in the South China Sea on the ancient sunken ship, the Nan Ao One. More new relics have been retrieved out of water.

Most of the relics are jars, vases, bowls, and plates from Zhangzhou, a long-established porcelain town of the period some 400 years ago.

Still, some are products from Jingdezhen, another well-known center of porcelain production.

One particularly interesting find is a set of porcelain with blue-and-white flowers inside, and five colors outside. It's the first time this type has been found at the Nan Ao One.
