Sukhothai-Si Satchanalai wares were well-known during the 14th to 16th centuries. Rang Kwien was the earliest shipwreck discovered with Si Satchanalai wares (Koh Noi products) followed by the subsequently discovered shipwrecks the Song Doc, Turiang and Maranei, which are all dated to the late 14th century. We can estimate that the dating of Mon, and Chalieng wares from the Koh Noi may be around the middle to late 14th century. Underglazed black wares from both important kilns were produced during the early 15th century. The Mingban was the crucial reason pormoting the export of Sukhothai-Si Satchanalai ceramics. The era of prosperity for the export of those ceramics was during the 1th century. Their unique style as demonstrated in the blue-green glaze attracted foreign customers, and served as a substitute for the shortages of Chinese ceramics and Vietnamese ceramics. Underglaze black wares from both important kilns were adorned with intricate patterns during the 15th century, not with simple patterns as in the earlier period. The evidence for these decorative changes is found in the following shipwrecks: Nanyang, Longquan, Royal Nanthai, Ko Kram, Pandanan, and Belanakan. After the Ming ban was lifted Siam ceramic exports declined, and production of the ceramics ceased int he late 16th century because of the Burmese war.
