It was during an excavation in the renovation that takes place at the Ipiranga Museum, in São Paulo, that rare and precious objects were found buried in the garden.
Because of the items discovered, the space has now become an archaeological monitoring site. According to the team, fragments of bones, porcelain and even items for personal use were found.
The first item published on Instagram at the Museu do Ipiranga was a denture the first half of the 20th century. It can be useful for studies in dental schools, about implantation techniques.
Some pieces are secular and the museum administration ensures that all of them will be posted on the museum's social networks as soon as they are identified, with dates and other information.
Fragments of plates, cups and porcelain pots were also found. The museum's scientific consultancy identified that the set dates back to the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.
One of the pieces seems to be the bottom of a shallow dish, with the registration Société Céramique Maestrich, a Dutch brand 1859.
A piece of dish produced at Fábrica de Louças Santa Catharina (FSC) was also identified, one of the first in the country.
