TYPE: Phoenix Polychrome

DATE: A.D. 1375 to 1450 (Neuzil & Lyons, 2005:34 )

BOWL DESIGN PLACEMENT: Exteriors only.

COMMON DESIGNS: Designs the same as Gila Polychrome and Tonto Polychrome.

KEY DIFFERENCES: No interior design, interiors slipped red.

VARIETIES: Exteriors of bowls may be painted in a Gila or Tonto Style.

COMMENTS: Many bowls have recurved or semi-flaring rims. Neuzil & Lyons show a slightly incurved bowl with a somewhat direct rim painted in the manner of Phoenix Polychrome yet describe it as a precursor to Phoenix Polychrome (Neuzil & Lyons, 2005:28). I offer for consideration that Phoenix Polychrome may have an earlier beginning date (perhaps the same beginning date as Gila Polychrome).
