The transparent, blue-green glaze on this dish characterizes celadon made at the major Thai kiln center of Sawankhalok (Si Satchanalai). Its form and decoration show awareness of Yuan dynasty (1279–1368) Longquan celadon. Exported in large quantities, such dishes competed with Longquan celadon in the markets in insular Southeast Asia during the fifteenth centuries.
