Hand painted designs on dishes are common throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. These seven small sherds of dishes show various fragments of two popular hand painted motifs found at many historic sites. These 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.

Date: 1840-1900
