This complete extract bottle was recovered from the excavation at the Iowa Sac and Fox Mission in Doniphan County. Dr. Vincent Clarence Price (1832-1914, grandfather of the actor Vincent Price) manufactured and distributed baking powder, flavorings, and other foods. Price joined in partnership with Charles R. Steele from 1874 to 1883 to make the "most perfect made in Vanilla, Lemon, Orange, Etc" flavorings "prepared from true fruits." 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.
