Groups of parallel diagonal lines alternating in direction create a “triangle-patterned” band. Triangles are separated by thick bands of white space between them. This is primarily seen on porcelain. Note that Hatched Line Band 07 is similar, except there is no band of white space separates the triangles.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
