    This bowl was used at Trader Vic's to serve the Gremlin. Gremlin bowl drinks, according to a 1944 article in Time LIFE, vary in size from the P-40 (for one), PB2Y2 (For Two), and the B-17 (for four). This PB2Y2 bowl is blue with a scene of gremlins frolicking on a mountainous area with palm trees. Several smaller male gremlins appear to be chasing a larger female gremlin. Gremlins are the little culprits who sabotaged airplanes overseas during WWII. The use of gremlins by Trader Vic pre-dated his use of menehunes.
