Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Small brown-glazed footed bowl.

2. (Louise Cort, 22 June 1999) Some small cups of this form were also glazed with ash glaze at Buriram kilns (Tharapong and Amara 1989, fig. 9, lower right).

3. (Louise Cort, 25 June 1999) Bernard Groslier found that this sort of brown-glazed hemispherical bowl was "very common" in sites of the last quarter of the 11th century, notably Sras Srang (Groslier 1981, 28).

4. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-12th century to 1075-1430, following Desbat's revised chronology based on excavations in the Angkor area over the past two decades (Desbat 2011, 26). Evidence for vessels with "chestnut brown" (marron) glaze centers on that time span.
