Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Small jar covered in greenish-brown glaze, with concentric-ringed lid, grooves cut above foot.

2. (Louise Cort, 28 December 2004) Changed Title from Jar to Jar with lid.

3. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-13th century to 1177-1430, following Desbat's revised chronology based on excavations in the Angkor area over the past two decades. Evidence for matte or runny brown glaze appears only in the late 12th century (Desbat 2011, 19-21, 26).
