I've been turning this around in my head and I think it's probably a Chinese proverb and probably translates to something like: "Enlightenment is a Forest of Happiness." I'm still not sure, though...

A colleague of mine found a box of mugs in his garage and sent me photos. Most are the usual suspects from the Islander in Stockton but he also has these 2 items. The first is a Ku right? I searched Ooga Mooga for every Ku (there are many) and even did a reverse Google Image search but wasn't able to find this specimen. I've seen S&P shakers with a similar design but can't place the mug.






There's also this item which may be a decanter? I'm working off of photos at present but hope to get a true look at them in a few weeks.



Any help identifying them would be appreciated.

The decanter is a Bralatta Liqueur decanter from Italy.

It is on my wish list. Is there anything on my trade list that you might be interested in?

I believe the mug is by Quon-Quon

Thanks both for the help.
On Ooga-Mooga that Quon-Quon mug doesn't show up. So, it's either rare or no one has considered it worthy of posting up until now.

Ukutiki, I'll hit you up via PM. I'm sure we can figure something out.

PNG or Ivory Coast of Africa? Either way I'm putting it in my bar.

Hello,

Glad to be here as this is my first post and I have just started collecting. I picked up two of these from a lady who was selling them locally. She had bought them in California a number of years back from an artist. Would there be any specific identifying marks that might tell who they came from? Sorry if this is a naive question. Like I said I just started collecting.

Any ideas? Seen similar but not definitive types of carvings identified as Micronesian (Chuuk, Tobi).
