Description
The interior of this cup (or ladle, the differences aren't well defined in the literature) has red and black spatter (also called splatter) paint. This may imitate 19th century enamel ware that was common in the Southwest.

The handle is plain but painted red (handles on artifact numbers 109, 111 and 112 are effigies of katsinam). The exterior of the cup has four, unevenly executed bands of connecting black triangles that may represent feathers or possibly, although less likely, lightning.
