Curatorial Remarks

1. (Victor Hauge, November 1996) Light-green-glazed bowl with beaded rim, groove cut above foot and scars of clay ball supports on exterior and interior.

2. (Louise Cort, 28 December 2004) Changed Medium from Glazed stoneware to Stoneware with ash glaze.

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).
