TYPE: Reserve Black-on-White
DATE: A.D 1100 to 1200
BOWL DESIGN PLACEMENT: Primary interior designs, rarely secondary exterior unit designs.
COMMON DESIGNS: Opposed solid and hatched motifs that are interlocked with each other. Usually the hatching is diagonal, but parallel hatching in late examples occurs as well. Squiggle hatching may occur on some early examples. Usually the hatched motifs average two to four times as wide as the solid motifs but occasionally approach the same size. Framing and hatching lines are usually the same width. Rare unit exterior designs usually consist of simple short lines parallel to each other at a diagonal angle near the rim. "Bulls eyes" are common in Reserve Black-on-White but also occur in later types.
KEY DIFFERENCES: Hatched motifs usually average two to four times as wide as the solids, whereas in later Tularosa the hatched motifs usually average equal to two times the size of the solid motifs. Tularosa usually have tighter, more compact designs.
