Pottery assigned to this category as defined here refers to locally produced sand tempered pottery at Pecos Pueblo exhibiting rim forms and associated decorations used by Kidder (1936) to defined Glaze IV as well as a subset of Glaze D types defined Mera (1933) including San Lazaro Polychrome. Pottery associated with this group also exhibits a three color effect but as compared to the previous glaze polychrome bowls produced reflects a tendency for darker (reddish slips) as use for backgrounds. Overall design styles and arrangements for both interior and exterior surfaces are similar to those described elsewhere in this document for San Lazaro Glaze Polychrome for glaze wares from sites in the Midlle Rio Grande..
