Found in the shipwreck of the Dutch cargo ship, Geldermalsen, which sank in 1752, the pair of Chinese porcelain headless dancers imitate the Meissen model shown here. This pair were originally painted in the same bright color as the European model, but lost their enamel after nearly 250 years on the ocean floor.
