ELMO00000030.jpg Pinedale Polychrome Spindle WhorlThumbnailsSt Johns Black-on-red Jar, Alternate View
Cultural Period: Ancestral Puebloan, Atsinna Pueblo (A.D. 1275 – mid-1300s)

Description: This pot is described in the artifact catalog as a St Johns Black-on-red with an out-turned rim; decorated with wide band and dots on the interior; rim edge painted; and body decorated in the St Johns – Tularosa style with the base undecorated. According to the catalog, the paint is sub-glaze in places, indicating a relatively late St Johns.

According to Barbara Mills, Professor and Chair of Anthropology at the University of Arizona, you see the same design on Reserve/Tularosa Black-on-white and you get it over a wide area in the thirteenth century, almost to the Rio Grande, especially south of Acoma, to Socorro, and west to the White Mountains. Even in the upper San Francisco River area, you will find this design.

Dimensions: H 12.3, DIAM 15.0 CM.

Provenience: LA 99 (Atsinna Pueblo), ROOM 12, FLOOR.

Collection: National Park Service, El Morro.
