I found this at the flea market yesterday. It's about 9 inches tall, no markings or stickers on it. Could it be from one of SoCal's closed tiki establishments?

Toby Designs, that helps a lot! I only see mugs from them made in the 60's. I haven't found any info on a pepper grinder from them.

Look on page 183 of the Book of Tiki. There's a whole Mar-Hiti set by Toby Designs. I knew I'd seen it somewhere!
