Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Bowl covered in finely crackled straw-colored glaze, with groove cut above foot and scars of clay ball supports on interior and exterior.

2. (Louise Cort, 18 January 1999) A measured drawing of this vessel was prepared by Nishimura Yasushi on 10 November 1997 as part of the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties survey of the Hauge collection of Khmer ceramics.

3. (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).
