These five dish fragments were possibly part of a single dish or pitcher. They are decorated with a pressed technique, sometimes called mold-pressed. The decoration shows the profile of a lady, similar to Lady Liberty on a coin, surrounded by dots and a wreath. Some of the fragments have melted and warped. All five fragments were recovered from excavations at the Baker Store, in Morris County, undertaken by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school in 1973. The site, along the Santa Fe Trail in Morris County, was the location of the Baker Store, which burned in 1862, along with the nearby house, during the murder of the proprietor A.I. Baker by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts.

Date: 1862
