Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is perfect - not broken at all - and the decoration with black paint is still very clear. It has only a plain black colour and is not very elaborately decorated. However, it is a masterpiece because it is in such perfect condition, and it is beautiful in its simplicity.

History of the Object
It is a plate from the old kiln site of the Lanna Kingdom. The San Kampaeng kiln existed from 1440 until the Burmese invasion in the 16th Century. The kilns did not ontinue afterwards.

Acquisition
The museum acquired the object from Mr. Krisi Nimanhemin, who was a Professor of History of the Lanna Kingdom. He was also a great collector. He worked in many archaeological sites long before the University's Fine Arts Department took over this task. He donated the plate as a loan to the Museum on the occasion of its opening in 1973.
