Description:
Black (brown) on white ware; exterior slipped in white, design in brown, medallion-like element with scalloped trim, similar to Zuni design forms with Zuni-like differentiation between body and neck areas. Conjectured to be Zuni pot, since Zuni Pueblo ceased production of traditional ware in about 1920 and small amount of later ware was of poorer quality.
