Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 10 January 2005) Possibly Ratchaburi?

This jar was bought by Victor Hauge in Chiang Mai.

2. (Louise Cort, 11 October 2005) Comments from Morimoto Asako, archaeologist specializing in Chinese and Vietnamese ceramics recovered from sites in Hakata (Fukuoka), Short-term Visitor to study Hauge collection:

Made by a process of coiling and paddling (the paddling not to shape so much as to consolidate the coils). Round scar on side indicates that the jar was stacked on its side for firing. This type of jar is not familiar to her from her surveys in Vietnam.

3. (Louise Cort, 20 January 2006) If Chinese, this jar was probably made in Guangdong province. If Thai, it could only have been made by a potter in Ratchaburi continuing Guangdong ceramic traditions.

4. (Louise Cort, 3 February 2008) To Origin added South China, Vietnam, or Thailand.
