Last Chance Joe Mug a.k.a. The Nugget Cowboy Mug - in 5 collections

This is a multicolored cold-painted cowboy mug. 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 mugs, there were also Joe coins, postcards, salt and pepper shakers, bobble heads, casino chips and other advertising.
