      CRoad, I purchased the Harlow book. Interesting trying to identity the older pottery. Didn't realize the vast assortment of different kinds.

      I have several Anasazi items too...

      My first thought was Laguna, based on the design patterns. However, it appears that the clay body itself is pinkish, which would indicate Zuni, rather than Acoma or Laguna, which have white clay.

      Early Acoma, Laguna, and Zuni pots from this time period (early 1900s to 1920s) often look similar, making it difficult to positively identify them. The white or pinkish clay is probably the best indicator.

      Potters can be influenced by the designs from other pueblos, or can marry into a pueblo and continue making the style of pottery they grew up with, but the clay source will be the key. Clay varies considerably from pueblo to pueblo, and is really the defining means of identification. So I think you were right.
