Big ma halo for you Tikinomad! I'm glad you like this thread, I like your menus too.
Share some more photos from your Spanish collection if you can, maybe we could make some trade. I have some menus from the places you are looking for.
Also, maybe you can share some pictures from the bars those menus come from. Or anything else you can tell us about Tiki in Spain.
I can tell you that Malibu bar is closed now...

Ma halo amigo!

This is a great thread in Travelling no less.

Didn't see a link to one of the best mug sites and you can't talk
Spanish mugs without a Porcelanas Pavon link close by. It was the
biggest mug explosion of new mugs ever. It was sorta discovering
tiki again.

teaKEY: Why don't you show us some pictures of your mugs?

The Spanish mugs in my collection are vintage made by the original manufacturers 40 years before Porcelanas Pavon. Pavon did not created those mugs and that is why I don't refer to them. They make (not cheap) reproductions of SOME of the original mugs. There is no comparison between the quality of vintage and reproductions.
I know the complete story behind Spanish tiki culture, I knew the artists, I will show that someday, with many pictures and examples...


Aloha all

Zeta, I have to agree with you on the fact that old tiki mugs are made much nicer than the new ones. I try to collect vintage tiki mugs. One thing I like the best besides the design factor is the fact that the old mugs in general with the exception of some of the coffee grog mugs are real thin and lighter in weight and it is easier to hold and drink from. I have some new mugs but usually I don't serve drinks in them, they are pretty thick, I wonder why?

Um, Sperm Whale, as Zeta said before, I live in Spain and even for me it's not easy to get spanish mugs, I mean THESE mugs Z is showing... They are really old and obscure, and they're not being made since long ago. But you always can get the Porcelanas Pavón reproductions.

And Zeta, it's true, you can get them at flea markets... if you're very lucky!

Aloha caballeros!

The main difference between vintage American and Spanish mugs is that American mugs are made of clay, that's why they are lighter, Spanish mugs are made of porcelain and that's what make them heavier.

A picture of another vintage mug from my collection...
Hasta luego amigos!

Zeta, thanks for the reply your collection is very interesting to me. Could you put some more pictures of mugs for us. These mugs from Spain have some of the most interesting designs.

One is original vintage and the other one is a fake reproduction, which one is which?
