From the kilns of Si Satchanalai in the Kingdom of Sukhothai, this iron glazed stoneware ceramic jar is about 550 years old. It was recovered from the Royal Nanhai shipwreck, a junk bound for Indonesia that sank off the coast of Malaysia. The ship was loaded with some 20,000 ceramic vessels, including the finest 15thC celadon wares and stoneware from Sukhothai ever seen. The discovery shows the success of the Si Satchanalai kilns in supplying this trade. Only about 20% of the cargo was recoverable, with 2,000 pieces going to the National Museum in Kuala Lumpur, and most intact pieces have now been acquired by museums and private collectors around the world.
A rare opportunity to own an ancient recovered treasure.
