These two beads were the only beads recovered from the Martin Farmstead in Republic County. The site was the location of Phase IV archeological salvage in 1992, due to impending highway construction, and is representative of the lifestyle of rural Kansans and Americans of the late 19th- to early 20th-centuries. Both beads were found near the wrap around porch of the house. The rose colored bead is made of wound glass. The other glass bead has a brown and grey swirl pattern.

Date: 1885-1947
