Tularosa White-on-Red CA. 1100-1200
This type is based on Tularosa Fillet Rim, but now the area of the bowl below the filets has been given a red slip, and is painted with bold white linear designs. There is no hatching, and the designs tend to be framed by a single line top and bottom. It is one of the most attractive of the Tularosa types.
