Jeddito Tooled was defined by Hargrave (1932). This type reflects similar manufacturing conventions as Jeddito Plain but with the addition of intentionally textured decorations over the plain surface (Colton 1956; Hargrave 1932). Pastes and surfaces are gray, yellow, pink, or reddish to tan in color and indicate firing in a in poorly controlled oxidation atmospheres. Temper usually consists of very coarse sand. Surfaces are unpolished and very rough. Pastes tend to crumble and fracture easily. Vessels are almost always represented by jars. Decorations consist of incised or punched treatments often done in a wide band around the widest portion of the vessel, or from the widest diameter all the way to the rim. Incising is usually done in a zig-zag design around the neck of jars. The base sometimes exhibits basket imprints.
