Restricted hemispherical bowl. Symmetrically patterned solid and hatched elements on interior. White linear band on exterior. St. John's Polychrome. White Mountain red ware.

Red clay and slip, and white and black paint

St. John's polychrome style. Red and orange pottery reached its peak in the Little Colorado River area of North-central Arizona and adjacent New Mexico. The product of Anasazi and Mogollon aesthetic integration, this ware is distinguished by designs with solid or hatched black geometric patterns (an Anasazi feature) on red or orange bowl interiors (a Mogollon feature) together with innovative white painting on bowl exteriors.

A piece of white cloth tape is affixed to the underside. Handwritten in black ink, it reads, "St Johns / Poly."
