With all due respect...........What the

Ahhhh Gotcha!

Someone here will know. You should get the Tiki Quest book by Duke Carter.
The bible for Tiki mugs. Great book even if you don't collect.

Very interesting. I don't recall seeing anything like this in Tiki Quest, though.
Is there any other information you can provide? A sticker or maker's mark on the bottom? Anything?

Unusual score, where did you find it?

Did a quick search on E-bay and found one of these listed. Goblet is jungle themed with a Monkey, Zebra, and a toucan. It is from the Golden Nugget Casino, most likely served in the Tarzan lounge at the Laughlin casino. Judging by the ceramic work, I would date it to the 1980s at the oldest.

Aloha all

I (think) I have a (70s 80s) Golden Nugget tropical drink menu, its nothing over the top illustration-wise but as I recall it has all the standard tropical drink fare, unfortunately I cant get to my menus for a few weeks, but obviously they had something going on.
