Here's one I've never seen before. The auction went a little high for me, but it's very cool nonetheless. Congrats to the new owner!








Stunning! I am in total disbelief! How could I have never seen such a mug in all these years!



As a matter of fact, I am in DENIAL - like totally! I flat out cannot accept this apparition and therefore convinced myself that this is a recent creation, fashioned from the menu rendering by some Tiki-Banksy, who jokingly added some "Spanish-style" dry ice pockets.

WHAT did the auction text say? WHERE did it come from? I don't believe a word of it!

Here's the link to the auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&rt=nc&nma=true&item=290545296240&si=9LZFMB2PZlvQnAlWTIvmbVY57FU%253D&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT#ht_6782wt_1141

I would have been skeptical as well, but they had the following vintage unmarked Spurlin (if memory serves) Tiki Mug listed as well and both supposedly came out of an estate sale.



It went for $182.50 to a different bidder.

I don't know if the Tropic Isle mug is a Spurlin as well since it appears glossy, but the earth tone color is about the same. What do you guys think?
