I love cigar store indians--all cigar store figures for that matter. I've loved them as far back as I can remember. Do you have one? Does your B&M? Does your antique or junk shop? How about a pic? Or a link? I'd love to see what you've got regardless of condition. Please post it here. Thanks! :)

Thanks for posting pics, fellas. Where/how did you get 'em?

As for the Seinfeld one, someone behind the scenes at that show must've been a cigar smoker. Cigars--and apparently cigar store indians--were featured semi-frenquently. :tu

My parents bought me mine for a gift but they said they found it on ebay.

Our local library has a cigar store indian that came from one of town's tobacco shop that shut down back in the late 50's. I'm still trying to figure out a way to get my hands on it!:dr

We have a little guy that's usually in our office, but he's in storage right now while we're getting ready to move.
I know I posted a pic of him before in one of our "cigar indian" threads.

Oh crap. There are other "cigar indian" threads? I did a search but came up empty. :o

I got this guy at the RTDA around 2008.

The company is called "Art by God". They make quite a few different ones and sizes.http://www.cigarasylum.com/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=14995&stc=1&d=1408135977

There are a lot of them on eBay, all different sizes. Some pretty cool ones, including the guy that created the Indian for the Cheers Bar (on the show) that still will hand carve them in that style.

I love cigar store Indians. I will eventually get one for my man cave one of these days.

These are great, fellas! Thanks for posting.

Tom, yours looks like it was made by the same carver that did Dom's. Where'd you get him?

Bought him off Craigslist, Dave, can't even remember where I had it shipped in from. I have seen lots just like him, seems like kind of a "standard" indian. :)
