Between 1967-1972/3 or 1972/3-1975 to 2005
Mr. and Mrs. Victor (1919-2013) and Takako Hauge (1923-2015), likely acquired in Bangkok, Thailand or Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam 
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 Bangkok, Thailand (from 1967 to 1972 or 1973) or 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.
When the Hauges acquired this object, they believed it to be Chinese; however, the Acquisition Justification states that the Chinese ceramics were “all acquired in Bangkok or Saigon.” See object list attached to Deed of Gift, dated October 16, 2005, copy in object file. See also “Acquisition Justification,” dated September 15, 2005, copy in object file. In 2005, the museum identified the object as originating from North-central Thailand. See memo “Curatorial Remarks Regarding Place of Origin,” dated April 14, 2005, 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.
 Ownership of collected objects sometimes changed between the Hauge families. See Deed of Gift, dated October 16, 2005, copy in object file.
