MaYomJukChad is an exotic Thai covered jar/ urn which looks attractive and lofty. The unique top cover is in the lotus bud shape which is placed on the tiered bases called “Chatra”. The covered body is the scalloped dome shape with a thick durable rim.
The shape of the jar is scalloped, round with a narrow mouth and flared base for stability. This strange-shaped jar has a unique style as the “gooseberry shape” from Thai fruit called "MaYom" which is a tiny soft green fruit with a sour taste and has medicinal properties. It is a petal-like pumpkin shape. The name MaYom (gooseberry tree) has a good meaning. It is believed that people who grow this tree in their garden will be appreciated and supported.
In the past, this jar was often used to contain liqueur and drinking water. After the late 19th century this jar/ urn began to decline. It has become more of a collector’s item and status symbol or but in saying that, it makes a beautiful urn for the loved ones.
The 8 inches or larger size can be used for adult urn but the smaller than 8 inches size can be used for keepsake or child & infant urn.
