These two stove cover lifters 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. The detachable stove cover lifters were for cast iron wood or coal stoves. One is plain with the lettering "A.F. 108" on the underside. The other has a weld repair, through which the word "IDEAL" can still be recognized.

Date: 1840-1930
