My buddy Gavin found this cool mug at a garage sale. Ive seen ones like it, not this exactly though. Unmarked, very heavy.



Anyone have one? anyone seen one? I checked Ooga Mooga and Tiki Hula's excellent site, nada
These are from Mikes site, very similar.

The topless girl picking the fruit is definitely an early Trader Vic's mug, and since the other fog cutter shaped ones are often associated with TV's, this one might be, too.

Yeah, total junk. You can pay me to take it from you.
Nice score Al. I've never seen one like it.

Al,
That is an early mug by Tepco for Trader Vic's. Hard to find those, good score!

A nice piece indeed!! I have one and the line-work and colors are beautiful. You're right, it is quite heavy too.
Here's a link to mine on
