Dublan Polychrome

Dublan Polychrome is found only in a narrow band along the Santa Maria River from just southeast of Paquimé up into southern New Mexico. This type is very similar to Babicora Polychrome in both decoration and surface polish. The type probably grew out of Medanos Red-on-Brown, and is transitional to Ramos Polychrome.


Paste: Cream to light tan
Temper: Fine sand
Surface: Necks unpolished, occasionally corrugated; bodies polished over decoration.
Forms: Jars
Design: Interlocking elements in black and red and bound by black banding lines extend across the shoulder of the vessel. Occasionally black painted decoration on neck.
