Curatorial Remarks

1. (Ellen Chase, Louise Cort, and Blythe McCarthy, 5 May 2003) This vessel is OK. Amazingly thick.

2. (Joyce White, 8 December 2003) Typical Ban Chiang Early Period, phase 4–5 (more likely 5).

3. (Judy Voelker, 9 December 2003) It could come from the Phimai area, though it's not a perfect match (notably the upright rim).
