This bowl or sauce dish was recovered during excavations in 2014 of the Adair cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. Osawatomie and the Adairs were much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years. The ten sherds were refit after the excavation. The bowl has a gray and pink floral motif with a silver band around the rim.

Date: 1855-1912
