Gallup Black-on-White - CA. 1030-1125

The decoration on Gallup Black-on-White consists almost entirely of banded hatched elements. Solid elements only occur as decorative touches. This type is parallel to Dogoszhi Black-on-White, which has organic paint, and slightly predates Chaco Black-on- White, whose designs are tighter and whose hatching is much more closely spaced.

Characteristics
