Yes, SandraDee hit the nail on the head. When I bought mine, I loved it. Then... I started learning about different artists and over the years, my taste has changed. I'd say get it! For $40... Even if you like it for just two years, that's only $20 a year & you can sell it if you decide that you don't want it anymore.

Well said SandraDee. I have lots of stuff that I purchased early on, some I have sold, some given away and some I have kept as reminders of how my taste has changed. An important lesson that I have learned when sailing (garage sales)or thrifting, if you like it, buy it, don't worry about what the purist on this site may think. Most of the purist here are very knowledgeable and are responsible for changing my collection by educating me in the history of tiki. They mean no harm when offering advice when you ask them.

This mug is on eBay (not mine). Anyone know who made it?

Judging from the photos, I'd say it was made by "A".

In all honesty, I'm stumped. I just searched through every brown tiki mug on Ooga-Mooga (and boy are my eyes tired!) but I didn't see it in there. I also tried doing an image search with Google and TinEye, but nothing there either. From the style of it, I'd guess it's a more modern mug, but it can be so hard to tell.
