"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
A rimless bowl with a rounded bottom, a tan slip on the exterior, a thick red line below the rim on the interior. In a red field, there is a raised knob slightly below the rim; the area is used as a central dividing point for the decoration of the body of the bowl. A row of downturned blue triangles appears around and below the rim, and below those are two horizontal rows of red triangles that point in opposite directions. Another row of blue triangles frames the design at the bottom of the bowl. Each set of triangles is delineated by a black horizontal line. The design terminates three-quarters of the way down the bowl; there is horizontal incising in the top and bottom registers, slanted incised lines appear in the central register. The ceramic style is Vallejo or Jicote Transitional, 1000-1550.
Condition: numerous cracks that have been mended, one crack goes across the entire bowl. Surface dirt.
