Socorro Black-on-White designs (top four sherds) are easy to recognize. Although they are similar to Reserve Black-on-White designs (bottom two sherds), the scale is much larger and the designs therefore much bolder. The type is found between Albuquerque and Socorro, New Mexico, and was the predominant black-on-white type in that area for several centuries. The inspiration for this type probably came from the west, and may even have been imported early forms of Reserve Black-on-White.
