Cigar store Indians are a form of American Folk Art dating back to the 1800s.
They were commonly placed on the walk in front of tobacconist shops to direct illiterate customers to the shop.

The cigar store Indian was said to be the most popular trade sign but other businesses used trade signs too.
It is that uniqueness that makes each of these carvings so exceptional.
