These eleven dish 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. All of the dish fragments are decorated in different floral patterns. Shown are molded and painted patterns, both with and without embellished gold paint, hand painted motifs, and transferware designs.

Date: 1840-1900
