Agua Fria Glaze-on-red
Pueblo IV. AD 1315 - 1425
The Ancestral Pueblo owner of this bowl made two mending holes below its rim. Sometimes, as in this case, when a vessel cracked a hole was drilled on each side of the crack and sinew was used to bind the holes together to keep the crack from becoming larger. Agua Fria, where quantities of pottery of this type have been found, is just south of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
