hey, I found this tiki mug way back when I was a kid. I just thought it was cool, so I kept it..


there was a show on tv called "things remembered" or something like that, but in the beginning of the show, one time... this exact tiki mug was shown for a split second... i have never been able to find out any information about it though...

It's unusual, but probably not highly valued by collectors for a few reasons:

* There's no sculptural detail to it. It's all hand painted.
* It likely isn't associated with any popular locations, such as Trader Vic's.
* It looks to be somewhat damaged.

Keep it as a pen cup, and enjoy it!

It looks similar to the Blaisdell Pottery Native American/canada/Alaskan Totem pole style mugs..... you might try researching that.

It's a hobbyist piece, however I've seen a great number of them made in exactly those glaze colors, so somebody other than a hobbyist made a great many of them.

ErichTroudt hit it on the mark, it is not Tiki, but based on a Pacific Northwest Indian Totem
Sascha Brastoff (This is not one of his) did many Indian Art ceramics that get mistaken for "Tiki" designs.

It is made by Victoria Ceramics Japan. It is not a hobbyist mug. I've only seen originals such as your example. It is a redware piece that is fired once? for the gloss brown color then cold painted for the facial features.
EDIT: I believe Blaisdales are fired more than once. I'm no ceramist so the firing part could be better explained by someone else.

Anyone think this is the mug pictured under Samoa Fog Cutter?

No, it is not a Tiki mug referred to above.

I cropped them so it was easier to see what I was talking about. The menu is from The Beachcomber in Winnipeg.
Looks to me like the mug they are trying to depict.

Now, does that add tiki to it or reinforce the Pacific Northwest-ness?

Either way, I've avoided this one like the plague which is why I was surprise to see it on a menu.
