This reconstructed vessel was recovered in fragmented sherds from the Curry site (14GR301) in Greenwood County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. The Curry site was a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site occupied periodically during the Archaic, Early Ceramic and Middle Ceramic Periods. The vessel has an elongated body with a conical base. It shows six lace crack holes, which were drilled into the vessel after a crack developed and then laced with some type of material such a leather. An orange colored plaster was added to fill in the empty spaces during reconstruction.

Date: 1200 CE-1400 CE
