    ... or ceramics in general?

    I picked this up at a garage sale recently because it spoke to me - but since I believe it was speaking Thai, I couldn't understand it....

    I'm actually not sure what this is or where it was made. The family said it belonged to a g-father who was employed in the Philippines b-4 and during WWII. There is a partial label on the back that references that country, but most is gone and I don't know if it is a customs sticker or what.

    I looked online for a while and the Sukhothai Ceramics green-grey glaze with black and white inclusions fits this piece, but no luck on finding a similar design motif.

    Any help appreciated! I'm going cross-eyed looking at the interweb....

      this plate is old! and very interesting. it looks Vietnamese to me or maybe Thai or Khmer. that tight little design repeated over and over reminds me of a lot of Thai design. i'm not much help narrowing it down, but i do like it!

      Gotheborg.com might have some info, sure looks familiar, maybe from a shipwreck, I think there are lots of these, but still nice.

      Thanks all for the love.

      I meant to add that the folks I got this from "thought" they had a vase to match, but couldn't put their hands on it while I was there. I mention it because the ring on the bottom of the bowl looks like it was worn thusly, but actually looks like the glaze was intentionally left off. But then, the 'donut hole' is glazed with a gauzy design (almost looks like an elephant with a howdah on its' back, but could also just be a cartouche of some kind) in the center.

      They promised to call if/when a vase was uncovered.

      I REALLY hope they call....

      That is the way it was fired in the kiln

      I figured it was, rockbat, but after 400 years of wear, I wasn't sure. (assuming it is indeed sukhothai) So, does that mean it MUST be a vase base, or did they have another intent?
    6. rockbat, 3 years ago
      No, I believe it is a bowl/plate. These would have been stacked up very high, one on top of the other, with thousands of others, fill that kiln up.

      Well, I think I got the definitive word on this item - it is a piece of 'provincial' Chinese porcelain, probably from the second half of the 19th Century. Interesting, but not particularly valuable as it turns out. Might break 3 figures on a good day.

      Oh well. It was a fun exploration.
