  • Provenance

    Between 1967-1972/3 to 2005
    Mr. and Mrs. Victor (1919-2013) and Takako Hauge (1923-2015), purchased in Thailand [1]
    From 2005
    Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Gift of Osborne and Gratia Hauge, and Victor and Takako Hauge [2]
    Notes:
    [1] Probably acquired when Osborne and Gratia Hauge were living in Bangkok, Thailand, from 1967 to 1972 or 1973. Victor and Takako Hauge visited Osborne and Gratia on various occasions and probably acquired this object during one of their visits. See notes by Louise Cort, “Information transcribed from notes taken during visits to the home of Victor and Taka Hauge […] and the adjacent ‘Southeast Asia House,’ 1 June 2001. Conversation with Osborne (Bud) Hauge and with Victor and Taka Hauge,” dated 2001-2013, pp. 6-8, copy in object file. According to curatorial remarks, the Hauges acquired most of their earthenware vessels in Ayutthaya. See note “Curatorial Remarks Regarding Provenance”, dated August 21, 2003, copy in object file.
    The Hauge family began collecting Asian paintings, sculpture, and ceramics in the late 1940s and would amass a large collection in the post-World War II years.
    [2] Ownership of collected objects sometimes changed between the Hauge families. See Deed of Gift, dated October 16, 2005, copy in object file.
