In the twentieth century, these nielloware items were no longer a symbol of status, but rather represented a modern celebration of Thai traditions. Thus, they were favored gifts of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit, who presented these items during state visits with U.S. presidents and first ladies.
Gift from Their Majesties to President William J. Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, 1996
