Curatorial Remarks

1. (Candy Chan, May 8, 2003) Jars of this type were among the ceramic finds (13th–15th century) found in upland burial sites of the Tak-Mae Sot-Umphang Region, Western Thailand. About 60–70% of the ceramic finds are Si Satchanalai wares, 15–20% Sukhothai, the rest of them are Chinese, Cham and Khmer wares (Rau and Hughes 1985, 8, fig. 6).
