Curatorial Remarks

1. (Louise Cort, 30 July 2002) This jar was collected in Ayutthaya.

2. (Candy Chan, Research Assistant, 13 March 2003) Spinks points out that this type of earthenware pots were made at kilns along the Maenam Cao Phraya river in Ayutthaya during the Ayutthaya period (AD 1350–1763). Yet, no exact kilnsite has been reported (Spinks 1976, 188–189, pl. 4).
