a.k.a. Trader Vic's Hula Girl Mug, Samoan Fog Cutter
This Trader Vic's mug was used for serving the Samoan Fog Cutter. Mug is tall and wider at the top and bottom, and shows a standing hula girl, a beach bum sitting with his feet on a rum barrel and smoking a pipe, and a second hula girl sitting on another barrel. Marked "TEPCO USA, CHINA" on the bottom. Has ring at top and ring at base of mug (sometimes both rings are brown, and sometimes one is green). Detailing of scene is more crisply executed than on most other versions of this fog cutter that have been done more recently. Differentiated by the fact that the Trader Vics Old Time XXX Rum wording on the barrel is on a white background. In all other versions of this mug the barrel is completely painted with the wording over the brown of the barrel.
