Thailand Porcelain Gambling tokens
These porcelain tokens were made in Thailand during the Bangkok Dynasty (1782-1809). They were made and issued by the gambling houses or Hongs in Bangkok for use in their gambling establishments. They are coloured and each house had different tokens, to distinguish one from another. Because of a shortage of silver coins, these porcelain gambling tokens actually circulated as money in everyday usage. I understand that they circulated as late as the 1870’s. These porcelain tokens from Thailand are now over 200 years old, there are a number of different types. We can supply one or more for just £17.50 a token and remember what other 200 year old porcelain can you get for this little money?
