These marbles were recovered from the surface of the Canville Trading Post and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1994. The Canville Trading Post was located near the Osage Reservation in Neosho County. The clay and glass marbles represent hours of fun, perhaps for both children and adults. Two of the marbles are decorated, both with blue and red lines circling the marble in different directions. One marble has six lines, the other has three.

Date: 1847-1872
