Red forward and green aft..really? Just don't sail that ship on open water or you'll get in real trouble with the coastguard.

Of course you want a full load of rum, you don't want to drink the water, you know what fish do in it

Thrift store trawling, I picked a 'barrel' mug off the shelf; turning it over in may hand only to find I had a decidedly 'non-tiki' item. Much head scratching and Googling later, I still don't know what I have. Any ideas?

It's just a little smaller than a TV's coconut, and is stamped 'CANADA' on the underside. The motto reads 'VEL SERRO-VELSAXO VINCIMUS'.

I hope this is the correct topic to post a 'brain-picking' request for a non-tiki item. To be on the safe side I'll mention that this week I picked up a grapefruit-yellow Loewy Le Creuset 2.5 coquelle for $10...

cheers
Alefoot

Looks like you have a print of one of Fernand Leger's Cubist masterpieces. I dig his work. I think this one was painted in the early 1920's.

Totally guessing here, but with the Thunderbird and made in Canada, I'll posit CWC = Canadian Wood Carvers. I'm no Latin-speaking guy, my best guess for the motto is something like "saw (carve?), succeed or die". Not sure why a woodcarvers event (trophy) cup would be ceramic.??!!

I have seen the SS Cookie Hut on T C before. It plays the theme from Gilligan island when you open the lid. BTW,it's a cookie jar.The surfer on the wave is also a cookie jar and I've never seen it before. You surf freaks will like this. Open the lid and one of three songs will play: Surfing safari
Sidewalk surfing
and my favorite -Surfing USA.

Cheers

This is an eBay win. I was surprised that I was the only person that bid on it since it's in 'Tiki Mugs: Cult Artifacts of Polynesian Pop'. The lightbulb that came with it looks ancient.
The person that was selling it said that it was a souvenir from Land's End, England. It does have Made In England stamped on the bottom.

I don't collect surf, but I would've been so wrong to pass this up. Beautiful condition and measures 34x45 inches.
