Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 14 January 2007) Don Hein associated celadon-glazed wares in a generally Ming Chinese style with the wares made at Si Satchanalai that he terms LASW (Late Stoneware) (Hein 2001, figs. 42–43). Although Hein is cautious about dating, he suggests that LASW dates to 15th–16th century (Hein 1999, 150).

Changed Date from 14th–mid 16th century to 15th–16th century.

Hein, Don. 1999. "The First Underglaze Painted Decoration at Sawankhalok: identification of a key influence? (Diqu shouci chuxian de youxia caihui: Taigou taoci tazhan shi shang wailai yingxiang de zhongyao xiansuo?)." Guoli Taiwan daxue Meishushi yanjiu jikan (The Taida Journal of Art History) 7: 137–158.

2. (Louise Cort, 7 May 2014) A re-examination of the clay, glaze and workmanship of this bowl make clear that it is not a Sawankhalok product. Rather, it closely resembles the sherds collected at the Phan kiln site in the Freer Study Collection and the wares identified as Phan in the Sackler Gallery collection.

Changed Ware from Sawankhalok to Phan. Changed Period from Ayutthaya period to Lan Na period. No change to Date. Changed Origin from North-central Thailand, Sukhothai province, Si Satchanalai, Sawankhalok kilns to Northern Thailand, Chiang Rai province, Phan, Phan kilns.
