Benjarong, the royal porcelain of Thailand, wears the grace
of Thai culture through each carefully placed brushstroke.
In the early Rattanakosin period, Benjarong porcelain items
were highly prized and used only in the Royal household and
upper class Thai families.
Benjarong, meaning'five colours', was originally made in
China, hand crafted from clay, fired in charcoal ovens and
finished in fine gold plating. Each piece consists of hand-applied,
real gold masks laid over the white ceramic, enabling the
artist to produce a tactile, detailed Thai pattern around
the gold, using at least five colours.
The rare beauty of Benjarong allows it to be displayed as
a single piece or a set, to compliment interior design. Benjarong
is a product of Thailand that is cherished by recipients and
admired by all.
All of these products are available at the Shinawatra Home
Mart, Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai.
