This Great Bend aspect jar was recovered from the Paint Creek site in McPherson County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1961. Great Bend aspect villages, often called protohistoric Wichita Indian, were occupied during the Late Ceramic period. The donor reconstructed the vessel, filling in the missing pieces with colored plaster. The jar has two loop handles and a somewhat constricted orifice and is probably an example of Geneseo Red Filmed ware.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
