Mimbres Incised - CA. 1025-1300

Mimbres Incised seems to be a late, local variant of Alma Incised. Vessels tend to have thicker walls than the Alma series. Jars are shouldered and have flaring rims, like Salado pottery. The incised decoration can be narrow, as if drawn with a sharp tool, or wider, as demonstrated in our example.
