Yup, Kate sez it all!

Though some might see Northwest Indian totem pole influences in this guy:



....I say he's clearly an ancestor to this pop icon :

In checking out the extensive posting in the Hawaii Kai thread by Bifcozz I noticed two small ads for free mugs with a purchase at the restaurant. The mugs are by Westwood and appear to be coffee mugs. I thought it was interesting as this is the first time I have seen Westwood mugs associated with any restaurant. Here are the ads originally posted by Bifcozz.

Does anyone have information on this Westwood style mug? It's unmarked, but has a handle, is light weight, heavily patterned and has the same coloring as the Westwood W-2 mug. I've collected lots of the four common Westwood mugs but only one of these, and I haven't found it on Ooga Mooga. Thanks.

Saw this sell on eBay a short time ago. Intact service for four in the box with all of the pieces listed on the box. I would love to find something like this someday.

Wow, nice! Never seen the box before, interesting type face. I remember when I borrowed the set I photographed for the BOT, it came from the bass player of the Tikitones, and the transaction took place in the parking lot of the Big Foot Lodge.
Is there any way these days to determine who won it? How much did it go for?

Sven, it went for $ 213.00 not a bad price I think but way to rich for my blood these days. I don't think you can tell who the high bidder is unless you are the seller. I thought I would save the image for the thread all the same.
