1N Salado San Carlos Polychrome Jar.
This extremely rare jar has a typical red-on-brown design with white lines added. I have yet to read any literature even describing sherds of this rare type. It is reminiscent of Hohokam Saguaro Polychrome, (another extremely rare type) and could possibly be where the idea to add white lines came from.
The vessel has a smudged interior. Approximate Dimensions: 6 1/2" or 16.5 cm. by 6 1/2" or 16.5 cm.
