Over 190 pieces of porcelain from the Taixing, a sunken merchant ship from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), were donated to the National Museum of China on Tuesday.

The cargo onboard, mainly porcelain and a small amount of pottery and metal artifacts, were salvaged and auctioned in the global market in the 1990s. Waterside Group, a Beijing-based culture enterprise, purchased over 100,000 relics from Taixing last year. Its donation to the National Museum comprises 40 different sorts of chinaware.
