Accessory Mascots

Red Indian Mascots:  American Pot-Metal Indian.

This is an example of an American pot-metal mascot.  The piece has many age cracks due to the use of too much zinc in the pot-metal mix.  This is the great difference between those mascots made in America and those from Europe.  However this Indian in any condition is a nice find for the collector.  Because very few have survived it makes for quite a rare piece.
