Comments:
Huejotzingo Variant (along with Huetjotzingo Blue and White) has been reported from Mexico City and Arizona, but not from Spanish sites in Florida or the Caribbean. This distribution, and the wavy rim band, suggest a date at the end of the eighteenth century. This Majolica variety is closely related to the type, Wavy Rim Green on White described from sites in the Southwest by Cohen-Williams (1992) Barnes and May (1972) and Williams and Cohen Williams 2004) .
