This is a mug shaped like a tikified version of the ape from Edgar Allan Poe's 1841 short story, The Murders In The Rue Morgue. The ape holds a straight razor, instrument of its murders, in its lap. Although called a "bloody red wipe glaze" the color reads much darker. The original design sketches were made by Jonathan M. Chaffin. Munktiki Imports and Jason Yungbluth helped with translating Jonathan's design into the finished mug. This project originated as a Kickstarter project which reached its goal in 2016 with mugs being produced/delivered in March 2017. Edition of 1,000+ according to the Kickstarter page.
