Notes: Papers of the School of American Research.  Plumbate wear is typified by a glaze-like luster, caused by the reaction in the pottery slip of lead to heat.  Sylvanus Morley credited himself with the first description of the ware as “plumbate” thought there is no written record of such.  The ware was common in southern Mexico and Guatemala and was widely traded.
