These three marbles 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. Two of the marbles are made of glass with a swirl pattern. One of the glass marble has white paint glued to the artifact from the time the donor had it on display. The ceramic marble has Bennington decoration.

Date: 1850-1950
