Oneota Vessel 55

Oneota pottery The paste and form of this vessel is consistent with La Crosse Oneota pottery; however, the rim and the decorative motif do not fit the typical pattern. This vessel has a typical Perrot Punctate motif, but the rim is decorated on the lip top. The impressions on the rim are circular rather than notches. Vessel 55 was recovered during excavations in the early 2000s at the Sanford Archaeological District in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
