Cigar store Indian

Cigar store Indian
Creator: Hen, Edward
Date: 1871
Painted wooden cigar store Indian. Brought to Topeka in 1871 by Henry Moeser (1837-1876), who operated a cigar store in the 100 block of Kansas Avenue from about 1870 to 1876. The figure was reportedly also later displayed at the Windsor House Hotel, which operated at the corner of Kansas Avenue and 7th Street from 1882 to 1889. Moeser is believed to have acquired the carving from the New York tobacco supply house of Edward Hen.
