It appears to be a "Pacific Northwest Indian" design and not Tiki
a common mix up.

Don't let these guys yank your chain too much.

It's a Tiki mug. The glaze job is unfortunate, hence the Party City quips, but it's still a Tiki mug.

These are commonly referred to as Nubby Headdress Mugs. There are a lot of hobbyist versions out there and they are still being made.

Here's a new one that was just put up on E-bay:

That is Ku, as Tiki as Tiki gets! It isn't Pacific Northwest Indian (although there are a few of those around). I see these mugs in this coloration often, I don't think it's a hobbyist version. Are there any markings on the bottom?

Actually the mug pictured above (Top of thread) was sold as
an Indian Totem mug in gift shops in the Northwest United States
and while it may be loosely based on a Hawaiian Ku originally
it was purposed out as an "Indian design also, & you will find
plenty of examples through out the internet & eBay

So I stand by my original opinion due to the paint & glaze finish on the
mug pictured.

ATP, are you sure you aren't thinking of this guy?



This mug was produced by it's designer for many years in Washington. It was also ripped of by Victoria Ceramics in Japan and sold in Canada.

aloha, tikicoma

No, but that is the most available of the vintage "Totem" mugs
the pictured mug was also sold as an "Indian Totem" mug.

I can't argue that it was originally a Tiki design, but it showed up
in gift shops in Oregon, Washington, Alaska & Canada as an American Indian tourist item, also.

Ya but the red one is cool.
Better glaze, much more definition in the mold, not the same mug in my mind.
Not joking this time.
