TYPE: Walnut Black-on-White

DATE: A.D. 1100 to 1250 (Hays-Gilpin & Hartesveldt, 1998;106)


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

COMMON DESIGNS: Designs are the same as Flagstaff, or fine (tightly packed)  Sosi Black-on-White  in the Tusayan Whiteware Section of this guide.

KEY DIFFERENCES: Linework is usually less than 1/2cm or 3/16" wide. All Tusayan Whiteware  types have a vegetal paint (vegetal paint often looks soft or watery so the edges are not as sharp as mineral paint) and are supposed to have light paste.  All Little Colorado Whiteware types have vegetal paint and are supposed to have a dark paste.  Mesa Verde Whiteware types may have mineral or vegetal paint.  See article titled General Pottery Descriptions.
