Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Brown-glazed conical bowl with incised vertical stripes on outer surface.

2. (Louise Cort, 18 January 1999) A measured drawing of this vessel was prepared by Tatsumi Jun'ichiro 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) A brown-glazed bowl of related shape, with incised vertical grooves in the wall and a heavy base, is illustrated among measured drawings of four bowls described as of Jayavarman VI (10c. 1080–c. 1107) and Angkor Wat (c. 1110–c. 1177) styles, found in Thailand (Brown 1988, 46).

4. (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.
