I *think* I bought this at a Spencer's in Maryland in '74.
I met Jim Rumph once at an SF Con, I think it was Los Angeles in '75. I used to own a few mugs and a bong. Wish I still had them.

A photo Jim took, I post to have a look at the planter, raw, dry and unfired, the mirror is leaning against it. He often invited me in to create in his Mind Circus, Inc. 18th Street Studio.

- Mine is a rare polychrome back
- Tooth and wart detail. Teeth were sculpted independently and added prior to firing. Warts and other polychrome details were painted into the mold prior to adding slip - or Slyme as Rumph used to say
- Eyes were also sculpted and added after the piece came out of the mold. This one stares wildly to the left.
- Star and warts were pre-painted in the mold, then the horns were added afterwards and all were fired again.
