For five years I have seen this Indian standing in a window of a local antique store. He was not for sale. Through the years I have asked several times and was told he was not for sale. Recently, I was finally able to buy him after having a conversation with the owner. All this time I thought the figure was made of chalkware, but after seeing it up close, it is made from some type of foam. It was made in the style of a late 1800's cigar store indian and stands nearly 24" tall. The company that made it was ALFCO-NY. I was not able to find out much about the company since they went out of business in the early 1970's. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
