Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Two-color conical lamp stand (?) on high foot, the body and foot light-green-glazed, the bowl rim and interior brown-glazed, with a central hole to the base.

2. (Louise Cort, 18 January 1999) This piece is a pastiche: a brown-glazed dish-shaped mouth has been attached to the rim of a green-glazed pedestal bowl.

3. (Louise Cort, 16 January 2017) Changed Date from 11th-13th 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).

Armand Desbat. 2011. Pour une revision de la chronologie des gres khmers. Aseanie 27 (juin), 11-34.

4. (Louise Cort, 22 January 2017) Changed Title from Lamp stand to Lamp stand (pastiche, with added brown-glazed jar rim). It is unclear whether the incised line on the flat base is an accident of manufacture or an intentional "potter's mark."
