This rim sherd was recovered from the Markley Site in Ottawa County, a Smoky Hill Phase site occupied in the Middle Ceramic period. The sherd is grit and shell tempered, with finger pinched or gouged decoration at the base of the collar and incised opposed diagonals below. It is an example of an unusual combination of collared rim and shoulder decoration.
