The sherds of this reconstructed vessel were found at the Seuser Archeological Site in Rush County in 1970. Archeologists filled in the missing pieces with plaster. The vessel is from the Pratt Complex which occurred during the Middle Ceramic Period. This pottery is typically cord marked, sometimes smoothed over cord marked, with sand tempering. The decorations around the rim were made by a pointed tool and by pinching the clay.

Date: 1300 CE-1500 CE
