The broken sherds from this small pot were recovered during excavations by Kansas Historical Society archeologists at the Nulik site in Sumner County. The pot's maker incised an undulating mark around the shoulder of the vessel. Then molded clay was added along the line. Most of the molded clay has now fallen off and the traces of the incised guide line are faint. When archeologists reconstructed the pot later they added plaster to fill in the missing spaces. The excavations revealed a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) house and associated midden (refuse heap or mound).

Date: 1000-1500 CE
