COMMENTS: Pinto, Gila, and Tonto Polychromes have been described by many analysts as Roosevelt Redware. Di Peso described this type as being manufactured the same as Gila Polychrome (Di Peso, 1958;104-105). Dates are assumed to be the same as Gila Polychrome. Smudged bowls with recurved rims date to circa A.D. 1350-1450 (Neuzil & Lyons, 2005:60)
