a.k.a. Tiki Diablo Sea Horse For Three Dots and a Dash Green
This is a mug shaped like a sea horse with a skull wrapped up in its tail, red eyes, and marked for Three Dots and a Dash in Chicago, IL. It was issued in green and in a coral glaze. Though the seahorse may appear as a cute little sea creature, in folklore it actually has a very powerful role. Seahorses represent eternal friendship, good luck, patience and persistence. In Europe, the seahorse carried the souls of deceased sailors, providing them safe passage and protection until they met their final destination.
