This soup bowl was found in pieces in the area that was the approximate location of the Quindaro Hotel in Quindaro, Wyandotte County, Kansas. It was reconstructed after excavation. The maker's mark on the back of the bowl reads "PRIZE MEDAL 1851" in the upper arch and has a lion and a unicorn flanking a Parcel 4 Registry Mark that dates to September 2, 1851. Below this the potter's name appears in the banner: "T. J. & J. Mayer." In the lower arch appears "LE HALL POTTERY, Longport. IN IRONSTONE," which when complete read Dale Hall Pottery and Improved Berlin Ironstone. T. J. & J. Mayer were the Thomas J. and John Mayer potters of Longport, England.

Date: 1851
