Curatorial Remarks

1. (Candy Chan, Research Assistant, March 10, 2003) A bowl with similar design is published in Ozaki 1992, 34, pl. 43.

2. (Louise Cort, 18 October 2005) According to archaeologist Morimoto Asako, Fukuoka, this bowl is probably from a kiln in North Vietnam. It was formed and decorated using a mold, although the impression is very faint.
