Canteen-shaped vessels, used for storing and transporting water, are not derived from European prototypes; similar vessels are found among Pre-Columbian ceramics. The narrow mouth of the jar was traditionally stopped with a corn cob, preventing evaporation of the liquid (Frank and Harlow, 1974, p. 146). Rosettes are a common motif in Zuni ceramics.
