What a small world it is in California sometimes

Sometimes I think that if we all stick around long enough, well find out everything

I received this email from Karen this morning.

"Joe, I was digging around in my family attic when I uncovered this treasure! It was made at the Catalina Tile and Pottery Factory on the Island. The Factory closed in 1938, the last year Oscar had the Hurricane Cove. The bottom is stamped Catalina Ware, a name for Catalina Pottery.
I'll keep on digging for more! Fondly, Karen" I hope Karen finds some pictures too.

Those matchbook covers would make some great surfer t-shirts

Dang, TikiVato! That piece is incredibly rare. First of all, it's an obscure piece of Catalina Pottery - one of the most sought-after and highest selling pottery producers in the U.S. So the Catalina Pottery collectors would probably love to get their hands on it.

Then it's a rare pre-tiki collectible as well, so the tiki-mug collectors would go insane. I just can't figure out who would want it more.

I wonder what exactly it was used for. It's the same shape as several Catalina bud vases I've sold before. How tall is it? Catalina pottery pieces were often small, so that tourists could take them home on the boat as souvenirs much easier.
