Notes:

[1] According to notes from Louise Cort dated August 15, 1994, “…Mrs. Dodge's will lists Satsuma ceramics bought in Japan circa 1910 and others bought in Kyoto in 1959. Allowing for confusion over the earlier date, this suggests that, at the latest, the vase might have been acquired in 1959.” See Curatorial Remark 3 in the object record.
