Small, round bowl. Bottom slightly rounded, sides convex, incurved direct rim. Temper undetermined. Decoration is red and black paint on a light brown slip. Design field is halved, design is repeated with an a,b,a,b patern. The dot in the circle may represent "holding in one place," however in Casas Grande pottery it often represents "rain/water." Ticking, in this instance, along the edges of the diamond shapes, is also a common icon for ran/wet/water. Found in an unreported site, but typical of southern New Mexico and norther Chihuahua pottery. Glued, approximately 1 sq. inch of wall replaced, but not painted, some cracks filled.
