Ren Clark was a magician, and held several posts in magiciangroups in the 1950s. For entertainment at his Polynesian Village restaurant heperformed a magic act; as a souvenir, patrons could purchase a grotesque mug ofa severed head -- this mug has become one of the more sought-after tiki mugcollectibles, despite it not being really all that "tiki".
This is an original Ren Clark mug that he gave to his sister. Upon her death, the mug was inherited by family. This piece is is excellent condition, with no chips or cracks.
