These dish sherds were recovered from the Baker Store in Morris County by the Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeology field school in 1973. All were manufactured by the pottery of Wedgwood & Co., of Tunstall, Staffordshire, England. Their printed maker's mark style was used between 1860 and 1890. The Baker Store artifact collection was 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 at that time.

Date: 1862
