No return for Auction style Antique listings.Some historical context:Some of the finest ceramics from South-East Asia were made in Thailand during the Sukhothai period, between the late 13th and 16th centuries.An imperial ban on ceramic exports by China in the 15th Century (Ming period) elevated Thailand as a prominent supplier to South-East Asia, along with Vietnam, especially to Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia, and saw a transition from iron-painted to celedon-based ceramics. Sukhothai Ware (Sangkhalok)Sangkhalok was the name given to ceramic ware produced by a number of kilns in Sukhothai Province during the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya Periods (from early 14th to late 16th centuries) The kiln sites of the Sukhothai ware which had already been explored were in two places. Many of these wares are known as Sawankhalok, which generally refers to a famous site found a few kilometers north of Si Satchanalai, the sister city of Sukhothai, by the Yom river, but is also used for the wider region. Here they produced high quality products such as celadon, underglazed black, monochrome white-glazed, monochrome brown-glazed and underglazed jars, plates, bowls and vases. Production was on an industrial scale, as shown by excavations in the early 1980s, with two centres close together, near Ban Pa Yang and Ban Koh Noi. The latter contained more than 150 furnaces in a little over a square kilometer.The second, later, site was known as the Sukhothai Kilns, located outside the northern wall of the ancient city of Sukhothai. The kilns were constructed along an ancient moat known as Mae Chon. There they produced monochrome white-glazed and underglazed black wares. One notable feature of the ceramics produced by these kilns is that the clay used was coarser with a higher iron content, resulting in black flecks. Wars with Burma in the 17th Century ended production on an industrial scale as these areas were heavily affected.
