Vintage Native Americana Indian kitsch ceramic chief with headdress
This item is a little out of my normal boundaries, since I deal primarily with art, but I'll make a good effort to describe it: a vintage (1920's to 1950's??) porcelain indian chief complete with his handsome feathered headdress, measuring about 4" by 4" by 6" high. His bonnet comes off, so this is a two-part item. The surface is painted, at least partially or perhaps totally by hand, before most of it was glazed (except for the flesh of the face, eyes, lips, brows, etc., which is dull and not glazed, providing an interesting contrast). There are two small chips at the edges of the feathers as seen. Sitting on a curio shelf, I doubt these flaws would be very noticeable at all. There are some numbers impressed into the wet clay at bottom, that bottom surface's overall appearance suggesting more evidence I think that this piece has some age. It was found in Arizona and was possibly originally sold as a tourist piece. .
