I think BigKahuna means this one.



Madame Bong picked this one up a number of years ago for not too much if memory serves. But like everything else, prices increase by demand and less supply.

TEPCO made TV mugs and bowls originally. TEPCO was already in the business of making vetrified restaurant ware at the time, and the factory was close to TV's in El Cerrito.

This bowl shows the typical TV motif of the drunk and the hula babes.

What's it worth? What ever the market will support...
