Circa 1905 Warwick IOGA Mug.
This rare mug features an outstanding American Indian portrait.
The closest thing I have found on this is a reference to a Black Feet/Blackfoot Indian on some Warwick pottery but they didn't show an image so I can't be sure that this is my guy.
Crazy Horse was Lakota and t are big debates on whether he was ever photographed at all and possibly only a sketch may be out t of him. I am not saying that this is him but possibly a stylized version of him or another well known Indian. The debated photo of him that I saw online looked very similar to this portrait so maybe it was taken from what was available at the time.
