Native American, Southwestern USA, central Arizona to the Rio Grande Valley, New Mexico, Salado Culture, ca. 1275 to 1450 CE. A charming ceramic bowl with a corrugated, pale brown exterior and a smooth, glossy, black interior. The body of the bowl flares outward slightly at its narrow, rolled rim, and the base is concave. The Salado Culture is a mixture of the Mogollon, Hohokam, and Anasazi peoples, based in a major trade crossroads - with ties to important places in the landscape like Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde, as well as connections to the luxury goods flowing north from Mesoamerica, like macaws and chocolate.
