Footnotes

  • For ewers of similar form with four leaf-shaped loops on the shoulder, see John Stevenson and John Guy, Vietnamese Ceramics: A Separate Tradition, 1997, p. 237, nos. 117 and 118 (as 13th/14th century). for an alms bowl and a beaker with the same spotted glaze, dated to the 13th/14th century, see Philippe Truong, The Elephant and the Lotus: Vietnamese Ceramics in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, New York, 2007, pp. 83-84, nos. 50 and 51. The spotted glaze may have been inspired by the many Longquan vessels exported to Southeast Asia during the Yuan dynasty: see the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society, Singapore, Chinese Celadons and Other Related Wares in Southeast Asia, 1979, pp. 190-195, no. 152 and nos. 154-157 (all as 14th century).
