Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Conical light-glazed lime pot with ringed lid.

2. (Louise Cort, 25 June 1999) According to Bernard Groslier, jars of this shape, sometimes decorated with incisions under the green glaze, begin to appear at excavated Angkor sites in the second half of the tenth century (Groslier 1981, 22, no. 7).

3. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-12th 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).
