This plain white bowl, recovered from Quindaro in Wyandotte County during excavations in the 1980s, was actually quite well traveled. It was manufactured in England for and imported by E. A. and S. R. Filley of St. Louis, Missouri. We know this from their maker's mark, which was printed on the back side of the dish. After it broke and was discarded, archeologists recovered the widely scattered pieces and were able to reconstruct most of the dish.

Date: 1849-1865
