These two rim sherds were collected from the Plowboy site in Shawnee county and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The Plowboy site was home to the Kansa, the Potawatomi, and Euro-Americans. At various times, the site contained a farm, a trading post, and a post office with nearby military trails, Mormon routes, a railroad and the California-Oregon trail. Though small, one can tell that the transferware pattern was deliberately blurred, a hallmark of flow blue patterns.

Date: 1840-1930
