Here's the latest addition to my tiki bar. Falls into the love it or hate it category. Personally, it's gotta be my new favorite and will only be used to serve drinks to my guests of honor. Anyone know who made this one or where it came from? (no markings on this mug/vase).

Weird! It sure looks like one of those wacky 50's Napco/Napcoware vases to me.
It would make a very odd drink mug indeed!

Good Lord! You need to make a special drink to go in there called the "Puppy Dog Pineapple Parasitic Infection." Jeez!

What the hell would inspire such a sick creation as that! I have never been so disgusted in my life! What the hell does a dog and a freaking pineapple have in common? I think someone was on some serious drugs when they made that mold! Oh and did I mention that I got to get me one of those! I like it!

The flying monkeys from "Wizard of Oz" used to scare me like nothing else. This mug? has usurped those airborne simians now.

That is truly a horrific item, in a cosmic sense. Gruesome.

Jesus....you are absolutely right. This could make a better anti-GM poster than anything I've ever seen previously.
Horrible...horrible...

Bigbadtikidaddy - I think you may be right. Now that I've begun to research, this looks a lot like some of those Napco vases that don't fall into the traditional "head vase" category.

Swanky - I like your drink name. Am also thinking about a "Punctured Pineapple Punch" or a "Pina-Collie-lada".

If Traderpup ever opens a chain of "Trader Pup's" restaurants, he'll have to find a way to mass-produce these.

I *love* it! I especially like that the pineapple seems embarrassed to have a beagle popping out of it. It's almost apologetic about it. Great find!

looks like someone had a flask of rum while on a cheezy date at one of those d-i-y ceramics color me mine joints! Bad day at the swap meet?

Sabu-
Here is a fine go-with for your wacky mug/vase(s)!
The coconut head teapot!

The picture above has changed, is that something new that you found?
It looks like a nice vessel for your sweet-n-sour sauces!

I thought either I was losing my mind, or it was one of DAMNED MAGIC EYE things 'cause I couldn't see any fricken' dog anywhere in that pineapple!

But this picture scares me too!

Aren't those just dual condiment jars - kinda like a cheap imitation of Holt Howard? One for yer mustard, one for yer relish, I would hazard to guess.

You lushes see booze in EVERYTHING, sheesh!
