A vintage cast iron Black American Gentleman hotel bell hop. This is a Black Americana figure found in hotel lobbies in the 20's. Gentleman is holding a tray which served as a tip receptacle, or perhaps it served as an ash tray. A vintage hammered copper tray is a complement to the cast iron tray - fits well.
Its vibrant original paint is intact. Has light surface rust and signs of normal wear. Looks really great for its 90+ years. I'm tempted to keep it.
