San Ildefonso? -- Ogapoge Polychrome Storage Jar
This fine storage jar represents either a very late stage of Ogapoge Polychrome or a very early stage of Powhoge Polychrome. A slight reddish tinge in the arcs on the feather caps makes us classify is as Ogapoge Polychrome. The use of one framing line at the bottom and two framing lines at the top of the decorated area indicates the transitional nature of the jar. The rounded base and the well-floated underbody slip suggest that the jar was manufactured at San Ildefonso.
