Broadmoor Indian Grill Ashtrays

no.035 2011-01-01 rev

These Broadmoor Pottery ashtrays were made for the Indian Grill in Colorado Springs.

The rarer blue form has a backside Broadmoor-Springs potters' impression.

The red glazed ashtray was probably made in Denver. It is unmarked without lacquer on the back. Broadmoor-Denver ink stamps on top of lacquer often got removed.

The Indian Grill was located at the east end of the Chief Theater Building (aka Burns Opera House) on E Pikes Peak Ave. It had a bar and restaurant that served cocktails.

The beautiful opera house building was razed in 1973.

Click on this old post card looking west on Pikes Peak Avenue. The Chief Theater sign can be seen on the left just this side of the Antlers Hotel at the far end.

Broadmoor Art Pottery & Tile Co is out of view "next to the post office" just east of the Nevada Street intersection in the foreground.

These old post cards show the Grill's Pioneer Room. The one below is undated.

Our Papoose Bar matchbook cover reads "Recommended by Duncan Hines".
