Much of this mixing bowl was recovered when the Quindaro townsite was excavated in the 1980s. The whiteware bowl is decorated with two panels of blue spongeware design bordered by blue lines. Spongeware is the decorative technique created using a sponge or sponge-like material to apply a colored glaze onto piece. It was first used in 1820, but was most popular between 1850 to 1890.

Date: 1857-1862
