This is the Rockport Black-on-gray equivalent of the “Aransas Bay" motif of Rockport Black.  It consists of vertical rows of painted dots that descend downward from the lip on the exterior portion of the vessel.  Both banded and plain lips are present in the Guadalupe Bay collection.  Although grouped under one motif at this time, it may be possible in the future to sort these into two separate motifs once more data are accumulated on chronological and/or geographical differences, if any.
