1N Salado Pinto-Gila Polychrome Bowl.

This bowl has a band painted along the inner rim, yet it is not as thick as seen in normal Gila Polychrome designs.  This fact, along with the fact that the design has fine, closely spaced hatching makes it closer to a Pinto than Gila style. Therefore the vessel is considered transitional.
