The typical spittoon that I have seen is brass, this is the first one I have seen that is graniteware or enamelware. It is the gray/white swirl pattern. That is one of the most common patterns if not6 the most common. Generally not expensive probably as it is not so colorful. This one is a bit on the smaller side at 8" across. Graniteware is a bit easier to clean than brass which for a spittoon is a good thing. Not quite sure when these went out of style but they are in every western.
Should one see one of the more colorful examples at a two digit price I would recommend picking it up. I have a couple brass spittoons too so stay tuned for those.
