    Thai drinking bowls are a traditional symbol of hospitality. They'd often be placed in front of houses with an urn of drinking water for anyone passing by to help themselves to a cool drink.

    The piece above is fairly elaborate and was probably a communal drinking bowl within the dining area of a home.
