TYPE: Payupki Polychrome

DATE: A.D. 1680 to 1780 (Wade and McChesney, 1981;17)

BOWL DESIGN PLACEMENT: Primary interior designs, occasionally secondary exterior designs.

COMMON DESIGNS:  Feather designs are common, designs often appear cluttered" compared to earlier (and later) types.  Rims may or may not be painted red. When painted, the red is usually "carried" over the top, as well as to the inner and outer "lip" of the rim.

KEY DIFFERENCES: Thin polished slip, feather designs and design layouts that appear "cluttered".

SLIP OR SURFACE TREATMENT: Thin orange to yellow to cream slip that is highly polished.

FORMS: Bowls rare, jars usually have concave bases.

VARIETIES: Varieties are based on slip colors, orange, yellow, and cream. Orange is "by far the most common slip color." (Wade and McChesney, 1981;84)
