Cigar Store Indians
It is believed that over 100,000 cigar store Indians were carved in the past for display, most of which did not survive. Today, a cigar store Indian in its original condition is a rarity. Collectors determine the value of a piece by its condition, artistic form, quality of the carving, as well as who it was carved by. Cisco’s collection of cigar store Indians represents decades of collecting, featuring pieces of varying sizes from prominent time periods and important carvers.
