Just poking around with Google Patent Search and thought I'd see what else ol' Trader Vic had a patent for!

Absolutely fantastic research. Thanks to Pappy. Pappy wrote, "One of my big questions about tiki mugs has always been copyright-related. How is it we can see the same designs appear not only for different restaurants but from different companies?" I've been wondering the same thing. I've recently been really looking into Orchids of Hawaii. Take Orchids R14 Scorpion Bowl as an example. You can get an exact copy of that from Dynasty. Is it a copy? Or did Dynasty get the molds from Orchids? Does anyone know for sure?

Dynasty is orchids, same people answer the phones, same stuff. Heard it was a bankrupt/legal type thing so they just started under a new name....

Stiki Tiki, thanks for the info. I have Orchids mugs that are marked on the bottom Orchids of Hawaii Japan. And then, what I'm assuming are later products, where the Orchids is gone and it just says Japan. If you order something from Dynasty they're in Woodside New York. Was Orchids of Hawaii ever in Hawaii or has it always been on the mainland? The stuff from Dynasty is made in Japan? Thanks!

I'm going by info from Cobain at Tikiland, he's a big Orchids collector, he has a old Orchids catalog and used to buy from them frequently, as far as I remember the office was always in the same place, where they are made probably jumped around just like Tiki Farm went from Mexico to China just to save money...
The catog of todays dynasty is pretty much exact to orchids, save for a few things they don't carry anymore.
