Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Bowl, light-green-glazed, lines incised below rim and kiln support marks above foot. Slight deformation in firing.

2. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-13th century to 1075-1250, following Desbat's revised chronology based on excavations in the Angkor area over the past two decades (Desbat 2011, 26). Evidence for green-glazed Buriram-type bowls (distinguished by the formation of the base) at Angkor-area sites begins in the late 12th century but may date to the beginning of the 12th century, coinciding with the end of production of green-glazed "Kulen" wares in the Angkor area (Desbat 2011, 15-16).

With the two lines incised below the inward-tapering rim, this bowl closely resembles the form and decore of a metal bowl.
