Tableware sherds found at the Canville Trading Post in Neosho County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1994. The sherds show the maker's marks of potteries of J. & G. Meakins, Shedd & Turner, Thomas Hughes and Sons (also showing their Sitka pattern), and Liddle, Elliot & Son. One sherd marked with the word 'Eturia' may possibly be from the Wedgewood potteries. The name of one importer is also shown: Chauncey J. Filley. The Canville Trading Post was established in 1847 by A. B. Canville. When the Osage reservation land was ceded to the United States in 1870, the Osage left for Oklahoma and Canville followed in 1872.

Date: 1847-1872
