This ceramic strap style handle has shell tempering and would have once been attached to the lip of a vessel and molded onto the body. It is decorated on the rim with two incised lines, 10 horizontal incised lines on the tapering handle, and five incised lines that would have been part of the decoration of the vessel body. This type of pottery is similar to Allamakee Trailed from the Middle (Developmental) Horizon of the Oneota during the Middle Ceramic Period. The handle was recovered from the Wullschleger site in Marshall County, that was occupied periodically throughout the Early, Middle, and Late Ceramic Periods. The handle was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960.

Date: 1200-1400 CE
