Deadmans Black-on-Red - CA. 800-1000

Deadmans Black-on-Red was one of the first black-on-red types in the northern plateau area. It was the precursor to Tusayan Black-on-Red. The decoration, which generally consisted of coarse lines, wide bands and triangles, was often polished over before firing, blurring it slightly. These designs and surface treatment suggest a connection to Mogollon types.
