In the 1950s and 1960s, Chinese tiles in jade green were a decorative feature of tiki bars and oriental style gardens. They were typically used in breezeways and were made out of clay that was fired in a kiln. This tiki mug turned flask was inspired by those Chinese tiles of the past and pays homage to them.
