Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 30 July 2002) Red "earthenware" (or underfired stoneware?), wheel-thrown, pitted.

2. (Louise Cort, 13 October 2005) Comments from Morimoto Asako, archaeologist specializing in Vietnamese and Chinese ceramics recovered from Hakata [Fukuoka], Short-term Visitor to study the Hauge collection:

Earthenware temperature. The surface may have been polished. Single groove incised at join of neck and shoulder. Compare the form and details of stoneware jars S2005.140 and 141. (Both jars are identified by Morimoto as from Central Vietnam).

3. (Louise Cort, 21 May 2009) Something about the overall form, the shape of the neck, and the single groove defining the separation between shoulder and neck suggests Chinese workmanship, possibly in Ratchaburi or in or around Saigon. To Period added Nguyen dynasty or Bangkok period, to Date added 19th–early 20th century.
