SPAM Mug – by Gecko

in 1 collection

This mug is created by Gecko and South Sea Arts and mimics a traditional can is SPAM and the face in the shape of the original "Tiki Bob" mug which was created for Tiki Bob's in San Francisco. Here the design is "borrowed" for the true root of the island's love for SPAM products which goes back to World War II when the luncheon meat was served to GIs. By the end of the war, SPAM products were adopted into local Hawaiian culture. Other custom and open run versions with glaze and color combinations can vary.
