11th-13th century. Angkor period. 2” height, of truncated turnip form with thin raised lip. Coarse gray terra cotta with glossy brown slip to the upper portion in characteristic fashion. Excellent preservation. Angkor Wat was well known in the 18th and 19th centuries and attracted wealthy European curiosity seekers. Locals explored the ruins and excavated the grounds for artifacts including jars like this and larger, to sell. This example is of the period, the Khmer culture, and likely from Angkor Wat.
