This unglazed German hand-painted procelain marble was recovered from the surface of the remains of the Wyandot House Hotel at the Quindaro Townsite in Wyandotte County. Black double lines circle the shooter, which additionally has a red and blue floral pattern. Marbles such as these were manufactured from the mid 1840s to 1870. The brief occupation of the Quindaro Townsite and the rapid sealing of archeological deposits help today's Archeologists to see a snapshot in time.

Date: 1857-1863
