The LAST Final Tiki Update of 2008?

Stop the presses! The mail came today.

My friend Dan (of Ultimate Solitaire fame) sent me a birthday present! It's a wahine mug from Harvey's Lake Tahoe. There was a tiki bar called Top Of The Wheel there in the 60's-70's. Someone blew it all up in 1980.

It's a bit hard to read as the paint is almost washed off (definitely a well used mug) but it says "Sail With Harvery's" on the sail of the outrigger. This style seems to be more rare than some of the later ones with more ornate logos out in the whitespace of the mug.

It's stamped JAPAN on the bottom and is probably from the Otagiri Merchantile Company. Definitely an early one.

I have a couple of Tiki Farm reproductions of similar mugs but this is my first and only REAL wahine mug. Thanks Dan!!!
