Private collector, purchased from a workman on the site of Angkor Wat sometime between 1954 and 1957. 
Freer Gallery of Art, gift of private collector. 
 The private collector acquired the jar within the precincts of Angkor Wat during one of many trips to Angkor while living in Saigon, Vietnam (1954-1957). A workman who was cleaning out of the two rectangular pools that flank the causeway leading to the temple showed the pot, which the collector bought from him. See Curatorial Remark 1 in the object record.
