These dish fragments were just a few of those that were recovered during excavations at the Adair cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. A wide variety of patterns were recovered from the site during excavation including these floral transferware sherds, decorated by transfer printing. The site was excavated in 2014 during the Kansas Archeological Training Program field school. Osawatomie and the Adairs were much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years.

Date: 1855-1912
