Brimhall Black-on-white was described by Wilson and Peckham (1964). This type is similar to Gallup Black-on-white with the exception of trachyte or trachyte and sherd temper (Wilson and Peckham 1964; Windes 1977). Designs are executed in mineral paint and consist of hatched lines. These lined tend to be thin and evenly spaced, and often cover most of the vessel. Hatched elements are often organized in rectilinear straight or scrolled shaped ribbons. Vessels forms include bowls, jars, pitchers, and dippers. Brimhall Black-on-white occurs in assemblages dating through the entire Pueblo II period including tenth and eleventh century.
