Apache Babe

I feel like Janet from Rocky Horror, jumping up and down screaming “I got it! I got it!” Every once in awhile, Ebay throws you a bone. Look at this little cutie:

A chalk carnival prize from the 30’s, known as the “Apache Babe.” I’ve been coveting her for quite awhile and let’s just say I got her for WAY below market value.
From The Chalkman’s website (I also have his book):
“The forever popular APACHE BABE. No relation to our native Americans, this Apache has a French origin. Design by Burt Gittins as an APACHE DANCER of the 1920’s. Some of our earlier movies showed Apache dancing where the couple, throughout the dance would have a cigarette dangling from their mouths, and hats tilted to the side of their head. There have been many copies produced of this figure, but nothing compares to the great quality of the original.”
