American ? Glass Car Mascot any ideas

(1/2) > >>

Bought this today and it's a real puzzle. It's a car mascot as it has the groove around it to hold it in place. An American Indian Chief made from marbled, irredised, milk slag glass. Marked underneath with a B in a triangle and 1981 which I guess could be year of manufacture but just as easily a model number. All ideas greatly appreciated.

Nice one Max, at least I paid less than the $25 for it, but best of all I like it.

I like it too.  Something about the colouring on the face...it really works well with the subject.   :D

Quite a well known piece - and a lot of fun too. We've had a pink Carnival one for some time. The B in a triangle is the mark of Guernsey Glass, but another company probably has the mould now (Summit colours - but they've folded now, so I am unsure where the mould currently is. Does anyone else know for certain?)

Max, you have "A Century of Carnival Glass". Look at page 238 for a colour photo of the Pontiac Indian Head  :lol:
