Description

On the warpath throughout the Braves’ successful stay at Milwaukee’s County Stadium, “Chief Noc-a-Homa” pre-dated the move to Atlanta and current tomahawk chop that has endured in this age of political correctness. This rare promotional style statue portrays that famed mascot and sparks fond memories of Aaron, Mathews and Spahn. Crafted during the 1950s by Cleveland-based Gibbs-Conner, the porcelain creation stands 25”-tall on an 8x8 base. Akin to the company's popular "Chief Wahoo" statues, this one is clad in a Braves uniform complete with the tomahawk logo. Accenting the piece, the head is oversized for effect, with a Mohawk-style haircut, braids and that trademark toothy grin. A well-preserved memento from the short-lived Gibbs-Conner plant, honoring a franchise that never endured a losing season in its Midwestern home.
