nothing historic about them.

ceramic, made-in-China, sort of goods you'd find in Target or WalMart. some would call them kitschy or schlocky or even cheesy.

but, wouldnt that make them the modern equivalent of mid-century poly-pop???

in any event, am excited to drink my navy grogs and 1934 zombie punches from them...

nah, just this mass-market set of four that my wife got on amazon, they turn up at top of google search results. i'm a little embarrassed to even admit to them, they're not true "tiki" at all.

and now that somebody raised the issue, i AM concerned about lead in them!

C'mon....a Tiki mug (even a Leilani!) Is Tiki. I own some of that set you speak of. The Tangaroan is the keeper in that set. Be proud! Pay attention to discretion while hunting! If you see a volcano bowl for 5 bucks and you have 42 of them at home....buy it anyways! My name is Andy and I am a Tiki mug hoarder...be careful out there....

Yep, yep... what McTiki said... we are fans of all things tiki. Even with the "good" finds I've had, I still can't turn down the chance to rescue some cheap little tourist cup!

heh. thanks for all the shared thoughts.

i always intended to get my first set from trader vic's, but the prices were too high at the sarasota TV island grill, and the TV website shop is down for some reason.

mctiki- cant recall if i've asked you before, but what part of FLA are you in?

My first tiki "mug" was actually a little ceramic planter I found in the floral section of Von's/Safeway

At least yours are ceramic. All of GROG' tiki mugs are plastic.
