Flow Blue Dish from the Hollenberg Pony Express Station, 14WH316

Flow Blue Dish from the Hollenberg Pony Express Station, 14WH316
Date: 1857-1941
These two plate sherds, decorated in a floral flow blue patterned with gold trim, were reconstructed in the Archeology Lab at the Kansas Historical Society. One can tell that the transferware pattern was deliberately blurred, a hallmark of flow blue patterns. The sherd on the left was recovered from the 1991 Kansas Archeology Training Program Field School, while the sherd on the right was recovered by Kansas Historical Society archeologists during a metal detector survey in 1997. Both sherds were found at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station, in Washington County, the location of a pony express station, a post office, a blacksmith shop, and a farm with barns and other out buildings. The site, also a stop on the Oregon-California trail, was purchased by the Kansas Legislature in 1941 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
