Khalong Dish

Khalong Dish

Khalong wares, made in the 14th - 16th centuries in North-Central Thailand are relatively recent discoveries, but are arguably some of the finest ceramics to come out of SE Asia. This piece, in perfect condition, features an underglaze iron pattern named "black crow" which probably represents astylized floral motif such as crysanthemum.
