A small pitcher with some of the most recognizable ancient Southwestern design styles, Mimbres Black-on-White Geometric. The Mimbres people occupied the mountain and river valleys of southwestern New Mexico; the name we know them by is from the Spanish word for the willows that grew alongside the river valleys.
