Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Brown-glazed stand on high foot, small raised platform inside. Combed wavy lines around exterior.

2. (Louise Cort, 18 January 1999) A measured drawing of this vessel was prepared by Sumida Toshiko on 12 November 1997 as part of the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties survey of the Hauge collection of Khmer ceramics.

3. (Louise Cort, 7 June 1999) The flat base of the pedestal foot has broken off, revealing the unglazed interior.  The same type of foot is intact on S1996.121.

4. (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.
