Item Overview


Incredible, genuine, antique Thai charger, decorated with double fish and flower, circa 1350 AD. Sawankhalok: The term Sawankhalok covers the production of many hundreds of kilns of central Thailand. It is frequently used interchangeably with the term “Si Satchanalai”, but refers to a wider area not covered by specific Si Satchanalai kilns. For more information about these specific kilns of Si Satchanalai, see the map spot “Si Satchanalai”. Sawankhalok was in full production by the mid-1300s. The kilns produced: • Unglazed wares; • Monochrome white, black, brown, celadon, and olive wares; • Brown glaze with incised decoration inlaid with white; and • Underglaze iron decorated wares. Sawankhalok/Si Satchanalai clay is finer than Sukhothai clay and has many small black spots, due to the high iron content of the clay. Sometimes, the inclusions can be red or silver colored. Like Sukhothai, Sawankhalok mainly created relatively simple shapes – jars, bottles, kendis, bowls and plates. The earliest Sawankhalok/Si Satchanalai wares included dishes decorated with under-glaze iron depictions of flowers in the bases, with fish on the cavettos, and specimens of the flowers and fish design have been found on the Turiang shipwreck, dated to around 1370. Diameter: 10.5 inches = 26 cm; Weight: 2 lb. 7.5 oz. = 1120 g = 1 kg 120 g; Condition: stable almost invisible hairline crack (photo 8); Estimate: $2000-$4000
