This crock, which was reconstructed in the Archeology lab at the Kansas Historical Society, is made of glazed stoneware and was used for storing food. It is labeled as a three-gallon crock and has a leaf decoration. The crock fragments were recovered from the Baker Store in Morris County by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school in 1973. They were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993. The Baker store and nearby house, situated along the Santa Fe trail, were burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts. The owner, A. I. Baker, was murdered during the event.

Date: 1862
