These fragments of a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) vessel were discovered at an archeological site in Marion County. The fragments were recovered from a bell-shaped pit feature and refitted later. The lugs protruding from below the rim may have been used as decoration or to suspend the vessel over a fire. The lugs were attached using rivets made of clay, one of which can be seen at the broken edge of the vessel. The site was excavated in 1986 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and Kansas Anthropological Association volunteers.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
