Three Circle Red-on-White - CA. 900-1050

Three Circle Red-on-White was contemporaneous with late Mogollon Red-on-Brown. The primary difference is that Three Circle vessels have a heavy white slip on the interior. Painting is similar to Mogollon Red-on-Brown, but more refined and designs have more curvilinear and serrated elements. Designs are often divided into four sections.
