I could swear I've seen this mug before, but I searched for brown tiki mugs on Ooga-Mooga (God help me) and came up empty. Anyone have any idea what the story is on this guy? No maker marks but the details make me think it isn't a hobbyist mug. It looks like a variant of an R-74 or a DW114.

Looks very similar to the classic Orchids Leilani mug
but maybe a homemade artist version, since you found no markings?
it looks fairly new in your photo.

I thought it was closer to the R-74:



Dynasty has a variant, the DW114, but it isn't a match for that either. The toes look different for one thing.

Is this the "All Asians look alike" (or, as in Asia,"All Caucasians look alike") thread of Tiki mugs?
