Three Rivers Red-on-Terracotta - CA. 900-1050
Three Rivers Red-on-Terracotta was believed by C.B. Cosgrove to originate in the Three Rivers area of south-central New Mexico, not far east of the Mimbres Valley. It would thus have fallen under the Jornada Branch of Mogollon culture. It is a late ware, and our specimen was found with a burial, presumably a valued imported piece.
