Short History of Thailand / Siam

In order to understand more about the timeline of Niello production, one needs to understand what was going on politically, both in Siam and the World. As we view into the past hundred and fifty years, we can see Siam begin to open itself up to Western ideas and infrastructure as it moved from an agricultural society to a more industrial one. 

 By the end of the 20th century Siam had experienced 16 successful military coups, 17 constitutions and 23 prime ministers most of which occurred during Niello production.

Thru all the upheaval of the 20th century, Thailand industry not only manages to survive, but to grow.
