4Y Salado Gila Polychrome Variant.

A fitting name for this type would be Gila-Tucson Polychrome, with its Gila Black-on-White interior and Tucson Polychrome exterior.  Wood mentions a Pinto-Tucson Polychrome type under Tucson Polychrome (Wood;1987:65).  The exterior has three equally spaced motifs that are like motifs found on vessel #S8Y in the Salado Tucson Polychrome section.

Approximate Dimensions: 9 7/8" or 25.1 cm. by 4 4/8" or 11.5 cm.

5N Salado Gila Polychrome Variant (Salmon Variety)

This bowl may be considered transitional between Pinto and Gila Polychrome

because of the thin "lifeline" below the rim and very fine lines in the design.

Approximate Dimensions: 10 3/8" or 26.4 cm. by 4 3/4" or 12.2 cm.

 

 

6Y  Gila Polychrome Variant Double Lobed Olla.

Approximate Dimensions: 6 1/2" or 16.5 cm. by 6 1/2" or 16.5 cm.

The shape of this vessel may represent a double gourd effigy.  The vessel is actually four colors.

It is red slipped on the very bottom and inner rim.  The lower lobe is pink slipped (known as Gila Polychrome Salmon Variety) and the upper lobe is white slipped.  Both lobes are decorated with black paint.
