Kon Tiki Tribute Mug, Sunbeam Yellow

ITEM#: KTREP2
$18.95

This classic Tiki mug design, based on the hand painted Tiki featured on the mainsail of Thor Heyerdahl's Kon Tiki raft, comes as shown here in our sunbeam yellow gloss glaze. The capacity is 12 oz. and the mug stands 7 3/8” in height. 

One of our founder’s all-time favorite mugs that Tiki Farm has paid tribute to in reproducing on a few occasions over the years is the classic Kon Tiki Expedition Tribute Mug, featuring the Tiki mask hand painted on the mainsail of the infamous Kon Tiki raft. The raft served as the vessel that carried Heyerdahl and his companions in 1947 across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian Islands. The original raft is now on display in the Kon Tiki Museum (for whom we’ve produced an exclusive, commissioned mug in the past) in Oslo, Norway.
 
We have sculpted a new master and have glazed the mug in 3 of our most popular retro glazes (rich sandalwood, arbor green and sunbeam yellow) down at our Mexico factory. So, if you are looking to add a classic, timeless Tiki mug design to your collection, then we recommend our Kon Tiki Tribute mug.
