Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Vase from Ban Kruat kiln site, circumferential lines incised at shoulder and base of neck, dark iron wash over red clay body. Neck fragmented.

2. (Louise Cort, 28 December 2004) Changed Medium from Earthenware to Stoneware with iron glaze. To Origin added Ban Kruat.

3. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-12th century to 1177-1430, following Desbat's revised chronology based on excavations in the Angkor area over the past two decades (Desbat 2011, 26). Evidence for vessels with matte brown or black glaze centers on that time span.
