I'm in the U.K where tiki mugs are somewhat rarer than hen's teeth. Hence this collection is rather thin on both vintage and modern-era American stuff - it's mostly British made mugs by the likes of CheekyTiki and Fireworks Studio. But rather than bemoaning my luck I thought I'd tell you a little bit about English drinking culture and ceramics making instead.

The traditionally-preferred spirit of the aristocracy and the working class woman is, of course, gin. However, only a pleb would be seen drinking it from a glass... we like to imbibe our booze from gaudily-patterned bone china teacups. Left hand holding the saucer, right hand delicately fingering the handle. Bring to lips: small sips, frequent refills.

Also we do have a unique item, kinda like the British version of the tiki mug - the 'celery pot'. These are large vases or earthenware pots with stylised 'faces' impressed into the clay and then painted. In fact, the wider field of 'face pots' is quite a common collectible over here - with receptacles made for everything from tartare sauce to pickled onions. You can see a few pictures of some items like these in my flickr photostream.

Finally, if anyone is interested and finding it hard to get a source for UK mugs then I'd be happy to indulge in a bit of trans-Atlantic trading...

cheers!
