Well, it closed yesterday at $59.76, so someone believes/knows it's from TV.

Aloha,

I actually think it's right. And yes, the pig is huge in Polynesia.

Vic was a sculptor and did many animals. 1984 would have been a few years before the closing of the SF Cosmo street locale in SF.



So you think this is a personal piece of work done by Vic as opposed to something used in the restaurants?

Nope, i didn't say that, and didn't mean that.


As a sculptor, did he design barware/dinnerware for his restaurants?

Vic's work seemed mostly to be little bronzes...

Small Penguins, and other animals etc...

Just what I've seen.

But here's a big example... from
Berkley heritage



Smilodon californicus, commonly known as the sabretoothed cat or sabretoothed tiger, is the official California State Fossil. The smilodon statue in the photo above was created by Victor Bergeron, founder of Trader Vicís, and can be found in the plaza south of McCone Hall on the U.C. campus, where it has been pouncing on passers-by for many years.

These days, the big catís pounce is blocked by an even larger trailer that takes up most of the plaza. The trailer serves the construction project across the way, where the C.V. Starr East Asian Library will be built on the recently despoiled and graded Observatory Hill.

This enigmatic white ibex (or some sort of antelope) at the old Beverly Hills Trader Vics was also a sculpture by Vic himself.
