Asia Week auction, WTF3: Vietnam – bronze ewer, private Swiss collection

Furthermore, Christophe Hioco has a bronze ewer from Vietnam, which is/was in a ‘[p]rivate Swiss collection‘ (which is a notorious euphemism).

When did the object leave Vietnam?

How did it get to Switzerland?

When and how did the private collector acquire it?

Bronze ewer, ornamented at its base by the head of a makara. Giao Chi Period, Vietnam. 2nd-3rd Century. Private Swiss collection. 12.7 x 11 inches (32.5 x 28 cm).
