From The Islander, Los Angeles, CA, a Tiki Location
Manufactured by Spurlin Ceramics
Designed by Stella Bodey
Produced circa ?-1963
Edition of ?
This is the early version of the Headhunter with a broad nose and large hoop earrings. In a later edition, the earrings were removed and a handle was added (shown on bottom of page 56 in Duke Carter's Tiki Quest), possibly to make it easier to hold and less fragile. The glaze is a muddy brown with yellow highlights that was used on several Spurlin pieces and is quite unique. The Los Angeles Islander menu shows a drink served in this mug called the "Coffee Grog" and this is pictured in Sven Kirsten's The Book of Tiki on page 163.
