User: The Arapahoe Brand
Distributor: Albert Pick & Company
Date of tumbler: 1920s
Notes: This tumbler for The Arapahoe Brand has an Arapahoe Native American chief on the side whose logo includes a spear and a Native American shield. The piece does not have a manufacturer's backstamp but does have the Albert Pick & Co.'s Vitrified China Chicago backstamp.
This advertising tumbler likely came from The Arapahoe Shop located at Main and 8th in Pueblo, Colorado. The ad above, found in The Pueblo Indicator of Pueblo, Colo., in 1921, features the shop's own "Arapahoe Brand" of coffee and butter. The Arapahoe name and Native American Chief can be seen in this circa 1922 photo of the shop interior.
