This medicine jar was recovered from the Martin Farmstead in Republic County. The site was the location of an archeological salvage project in 1992, due to impending highway construction, and is representative of the lifestyle of rural Kansans and Americans of the late 19th- to early 20th-centuries. The brown jar is decorated with stippling and has "BROCKWAY" on the base, indicating it was made by the Brockway Glass Company of Brockway, Pennsylvania.

Date: 1940-1947
