Dogtooth Band 02

Dogtooth Band 02


This band is similar to Dogtooth Band 1: a saw-tooth motif that extends downward from a single solid line.  In addition, a dot is placed in the middle of each triangle. On the underside of the saw-tooth extends a small spearhead or arrow. There is NOT a second solid line enclosing the entire pattern. This is primarily seen on overglazed porcelain.
