Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Lime pot with lustrous brown glaze, conical ringed lid and tooled foot.

2. (Louise Cort, 29 November 2001) A measured drawing of this vessel was prepared by Miyata Etsuko in July 2000, while she was in Washington on a Short-term Visitor Grant with my sponsorship. She sent the final ink tracing to me in September this year.

3. (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.
