Curatorial Remarks

1. (Ellen Chase, Louise Cort, and Blythe McCarthy, 6 May 2003) This vessel is fine.

2. (Joyce White, Ban Chiang Project, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology, 8 December 2003) The vessel proportions and mode of decoration are distinctive and not familiar from the Ban Chiang context. This vessel must come from another cultural area.

3. (Joyce White, 8 December 2003) Could this be modern? The proportions and the decor are distinctive and cannot be associated with Ban Chiang finds.

4. (Judy Voelker, 9 December 2003) The rim shape is familiar, as is the horizontal groove, although she has not seen the appliqué around the neck in vessels from the Phimai era, where she works. S-curve cording was used to wrap the paddle.

5. (Louise Cort, 18 August 2004) Title is changed from "Vessel" to "Cord-marked jar with narrow neck and everted rim."
