Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 21 May 2008) Based on her research on shipwrecks, Roxanna Brown dates iron-decorated boxes from the Si Satchanalai kilns to the sixteenth century (circa 1520–1570/84) and describes them as the most common shape of that period (Brown 2004). This box with monochrome brown glaze is closely related to the iron-decorated boxes and must date to the same era.

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