Probably between 1972/3-1975 to 2005
Mr. and Mrs. Victor (1919-2013) and Takako Hauge (1923-2015), method of acquisition unknown 
Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Gift of Osborne and Gratia Hauge, and Victor and Takako Hauge 
 Probably acquired when Osborne and Gratia Hauge were living in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam, from 1972 or 1973 until 1975. 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. The Hauge family generally acquired Vietnamese ceramics in Vietnam, but many of the Northern Vietnamese pieces were also acquired from “Mr. Goh” (likely a dealer) in Singapore, and some were acquired from Christie's in New York, NY.
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.
 Ownership of collected objects sometimes changed between the Hauge families. See Deed of Gift, dated October 16, 2005, copy in object file.
