I was out wandering today, and found this unusual ashtray in a 2nd hand store; paid $2. It's approximately 6"W and about 5/8"H. It features an Indian riding a paint pony, while hunting a buffalo. It has a signature in the lower "corner" that looks like Robert Redbird, Kiowa. On the under side of the ashtray is another signature "Boyiddle". The ashtray is in fair condition; the glaze is crazed and I did find some damage to the edges of where a cigarette would rest, and it appears that a portion of the pony's coat has been rubbed out (the white spots on the buffalo appear to be a manufacturing flaw). Any assistance determining age and value would be greatly appreciated. I tried a Google search, but nothing I found resembles this piece. Thanks in advance!
