16thC Sukhothai Ceramic Celadon Plate EUO33

This antique ceramic celadon plate is an impressive example of early Sukhothai ceramics and is from the famed kilns of Sisatchanalai of the Sukhothai Kingdom – the original kilns situated outside the wall of the ancient city. It is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs. I have received an appraisal of this piece from an aficionado of early Sukhothai ceramics, writing: “A beautiful specimen indeed. Typifies the era of around 1520-60.”

The production of ceramics in Siam began in the 13th century AD, possibly with the decline of Khmer ceramics. During the 15th century, China was faced with an important crisis, opening the opportunity for Sukhothai ceramics to conquer export markets. Sukhothai wares have been found in Indonesia, the Philippines, and China among other countries and were a very important article of trade.  In the middle of the 16th century, production at Sukhothai was discontinued, possibly related to the wars between the kingdom of Ayutthaya and the Burmese, as well as the resurgence of Chinese ceramics.
