From Dick Grave's Nugget, Sparks, Nevada, a Tiki Location
Manufactured by Otagiri Mercantile Company
Designed by ?
Produced circa 1952-1960
Edition of ?
This ashtray was manufactured for Dick Grave's Nugget in Sparks, NV. The ashtray has a stone-like finish and is topped with Last Chance Joe. Joe is a multicolored cold-painted cowboy. The character of Last Chance Joe, a bearded old West figure wearing a red bandana and packing a pistol on each hip, was created by Roscoe “Duke” Reading of Boise on a commission from Nugget founder Dick Graves in 1952, when Graves was still operating in Idaho. One of his enterprises was the Last Chance Cafe in Garden City, Idaho. In addition to this ashtray of Joe, there were mugs, coins, postcards, salt and pepper shakers, bobble heads, casino chips and other advertising. A similar stone finish ashtray was produced for John Ascagua's Nugget and Trader Dick's but with a moai. There is also a similar stone finish ashtray for the Los Angeles Islander but with their signature menu tiki.
