This brown transferware dish sherd is printed on both sides with a landscape scene. It was recovered from excavation at the Iowa Sac and Fox Mission in Doniphan County. The transferware printing method is shown on these two refit dinner plate sherds. The Presbyterian Mission was built in 1845 and closed in 1863. After that part of the building was razed, the rest was used as a residence until 1905. The State of Kansas acquired to property in 1941.

Date: 1845-1905
