Indian Chief Motif Porcelain Humidor, American, circa 1900

$1,685

About

Fine quality hand painted porcelain humidor is in excellent all original condition with no chips, repairs, or overpaint; nice bright crisp paint and detail. No mark, but definitely American, circa 1900 era. Note the detail to the Indian's face and his elaborate headdress. Native American Indians were especially attracted to tobacco and related products and relished the opportunity to pose for pictures on that topic; note cigar store "Indians", match safes, and humidors. This is a very desirable and item of tobacciana with the Indian subject matter and the attractive multicolored hand painted Indian chief with headdress, probably of note but I have not been able to accurately identify him; quite possibly "Big Bow" an Indian warrior who has been identified on other similar objects. Grace Young was a painter of Indian subjects at the turn of the century and her work can be seen on similar items, so she might very well have been the artist as she was quite prolific in this medium The humidor maintains its original removable tin top and measures: 7 1/2" high x 6" wide. This is a wonderful piece of Americana and is from my own personal collection.
