Curatorial Remarks

1. (Candy Chan, Research Assistant, May 19, 2003) Bowls of this type were found in the Royal Nanhai shipwreck (+/- 1460 AD), a mid-15th century vessel of South China Sea type discovered off the eastern coast of peninsular Malaysia in 1995. It was dated with reference to the finds of Chinese blue and white bowl of the interregnum period. This vessel carried about 21,000 ceramics and most of which are Si Satchanalai celadon wares. A large number of Singburi jars were also found (Brown and Sjostrand 2001, 49, color pl. 63).

2. (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.
