This dish was collected in three fragments from the Plowboy site in Shawnee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The donor reconstructed the depression glass dish with handle prior to donating the artifact. Depression glass was a mass produced, low quality glassware and pink was a very popular color in the 1920s and 1930s. 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: 1920-1939
