In the film Jaws (1975), Quint was a grizzled, seasoned shark hunter, who resided on the Island of Amity, MA in the shanty seaside port of Menemsha.
His hatred of sharks goes back to his time in the service during WWII...
Played by actor Robert Shaw, at one point in the film Quint delivers a soliloquy fit for the Globe Theatre about the horrors surrounding the torpedoing of the USS Indianapolis where those who survived the torpedo attack still faced several days in the Pacific Ocean, drifting between life and death, dehydration and shark attacks. As Quint states: "Eleven hundred men went into the water, 316 men came out and the sharks took the rest.”
Trader Duck's mug captures the visage of the shark hunter. Made in small batches of 20 or less and sold to Facebook buyers through a lottery selection method as each new batch is ready.
"The back of the mug has an open pair of shark jaws and Quint's favorite toast: "Here's to swimmin with bow-legged women."
