Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 1 April 2005) Although it was collected from the Hauges' home at a later date, this jar seems related in form and material to the two Central Vietnamese jars S2005.134 and 135. It is likely that Osborne and Gratia House acquired it in Saigon along with the other jars.
