I'm looking for info about small metal sculptures made or designed by "Trader Vic". I recently came across a small animal sculpture and on the bottom it was stamped into the metal TRADER VIC. This is the 1st I've ever seen, but I wasn't looking before. Any links , info , thoughts , or comments are very welcome.

Yes, Trader Vic fancied himself as quite the artist. He did paintings of various subjects and bronze sculptures of small animals. That's my 2 cents worth.

A while back I came across a so-so wood carving of a woman's head that looked like typical Philippines made tropical souvenir stuff. It had a small TRADER VIC (or VIC'S) mark on the bottom. I assumed it was probably a piece sold in a gift shop at a Trader Vic's. (I didn't buy the head, it really wasn't all that great.)
Attribution is the sincerest form of flattery.
