MOGOLLON BROWN & RED WARES
TYPE: Tularosa Corrugated
DATE: A.D. 1150 to 1400 (Wood, 1987;170)
KEY DIFFERENCES: Coils usually measure up to about 5mm wide and average about 3mm. Corrugation is usually finer than Reserve Corrugated. Coils can look "dry" but were often rubbed when wet and look polished. Coils are usually very even looking unless they were made in the Safford and adjacent areas and which may date to the later range. Interiors are usually smudged and can be so well smudged that you may see a rainbow of colors shining off the dark black surface, others may have a silver shine.
COMMENTS: Tularosa and Reserve Corrugated are most often indented corrugated. Many have a coiled, non-indented center corrugated bottom about 1 to 2 inches or 2 1/2 to 5 cm in diameter. These are not considered to be the zoned corrugated variety because when the bowl sits on a surface, the outside bottom is not in view. Corrugation can be rough, smooth, or even polished looking.
