The Cream Paste Fine Ware Tradition has been dated all the way back in the Chabij phase, but was predominately found during the Acbi and Coner phases. It consists of four groups, each with their own types and varieties. Open (sub)hemispherical bowls and cylindrical vessels are the main forms of this tradition. The common decorating style is negative-painted and/or polychrome using red and/or black paint on a fine, buff-colored paint or slip base.
