This earthenware mixing bowl was recovered during the 2002 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Cottonwood Ranch in Sheridan County. The bowl has an Albany slip which refers to the dark brown to black slip of clay and water applied before firing of the vessel. No more food can be prepared in this bowl as it is missing its entire base! The ranch was established by Abraham Pratt, from Yorkshire, England, in 1878 to raise sheep. Pratt's son, John Fenton Pratt and his family continued to raise sheep at the ranch until 1904. Cottonwood Ranch is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a State Historic Site.

Date: 1878-1978
