WOW.. some amazing memory skills. Thanks Erich Troudt for the link. Cool to see that someone else has one 2. It sorta answers the question of what it is. Consensus to be a planter (although it doesn't hold water?). Here's a couple more shots of the front of it

Tatoo, dats a cachepot. Flowerpots , planters, etc have drainage holes. Cachepots are used to hide a drab flowerpot and protect whatever the pot is sitting on. Lava being porous makes me wonder how effective this one is. Very cool nonetheless.

I've got a metal Tiki mug that I've been carting around for years that I'd love to learn more about. It's 7.5 inches tall by three inches wide. I dug it out of a pile in a consignment shop in Haverstraw, New York around ten years ago.
It's made of a bronze-ish metal that's gotten a green patina from over the years, although I can't rule out that it's not a metal coating over something less durable. It sure doesn't feel as heavy as you'd think solid metal would. No distinguishing marks on it.
Any ideas? Thanks!
