Thought this was kind of interesting for a dollar. A colonial gentleman (maybe a president) figurine made by the Columbia Statuary Co. It's made of a type of plaster called chalk ware. There isn't much about the factory online but they are primarily known for making many of the religious statues in Catholic churches. Most of those came from Italy. Obviously they did secular pieces as well like this gent here. -Mike-
