The production of ceramics in Sukhothai 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, and the resurgence of Chinese ceramics.

This is an impressive example of early Sukhothai ceramics. It is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs.
