Interesting to see that catalog cover on the other thread (thanks MauiTiki). Here's an old newspaper ad I posted earlier in another topic...



At the time I was pretty sure this must've been a flower shop with the same name, but seeing that catalog with the similar-but-not-identical script logo makes me less certain. Odd that there's no mention of what they make or sell though. Noteworthy that the company itself is based in Japan.

I noticed in this ad that one of the shops was in the Kauai Surf. I was just looking at Dustycajun's post on the Kauai Surf
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=36840&forum=2&7 and noticed what I think is an Orchids of Hawaii sign. Am I just seeing things? It does appear to be just a flower shop.

Earlier in this thread were a couple of examples of Kokeshi Japanese doll mugs from Orchids of Hawaii and Benihana, but the above are pics of one I've never seen before from OMC that was used at the Fuji-En Japanese Restaurant in Denver, CO.

I added an Ooga-Mooga template for them at
http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/mug.cgi?mode=view&mug_id=9345

Saw them listed on eBay as "Geisha Vases" at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-Of-2-7-75-Tall-Porcelain-Vases-Shaped-Like-Geishas/192302084646?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D46657%26meid%3Dbff590c7fba5467d8b076c6b8a72cc14%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D14%26sd%3D322779093045&_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%253Aad4bef3c-a74b-11e7-b1a8-74dbd180dc0f%257Cparentrq%253Adc33733615e0aa4824ab70fbfffdc0fd%257Ciid%253A1

I think there are still many asian themed mugs and bowls from both OMC and Orchids of Hawaii left to be discovered. Probably unnumbered.

I don't have room to collect everything, but thought that these deserved to be documented with some screen captures.
