Love this thread. I don't know if this mug is crypto or not but so far nobody has been able to help me ID it.

Now I see JONPAUL has it on the menu at the Islands at Hanalei serving a fog cutter and HOUSE OF KU has it in a picture with other mugs from Vic's but not identified. Who made it and where else was it used? Mine has additional nose markings but otherwise looks like those pictured.
TT

In the "menu leads to mug", and "menu image is really a painting of a unique mug and not an artists meanering" catagories:

The drink menu from The Luau Atlanta, the Dinkler version.


The Fog Cutter mug:





Gives some hope that the blue tepco style bowl may be out there somewhere marked Luau Atlanta.

Well, doing research shows me this is pretty much the same mug used at Trader Vic's, so, not unique to The Luau...

Swanky,
Never-the-less, a great score on the Luau Fog Cutters.

Randy posted this picture of a mug from the Trader Vic's in Honolulu, it is not the same as the one I posted earlier. Anybody seen this one??

They also had this custom-printed bamboo glass



Sabu posted this earlier. And I bought these 4 mugs today. Saw them yesterday at an antique mall, came home, and looked them up here. Horrified, I charged back in this morning and realized that they even had the original swizzels in them, all pristine. The price tag said $60.00 for the 4 but they evidently had been sitting there so long they had been marked down to $40.00.










Are these the mugs that Tipsy said were quickly phased out because of concerns from the health department? Does anyone have any more information on the manufacturer? Are these even the one's from the menu or just some reproduction?

I would say those are original. I have never heard of a reproduction and you'd have to find a bamboo "glass" to start with, which is not easy.

Now, are you parting with the extra 3?

SuperEight - Those are a fantasitic find! Congrats.

The original swizzles, (which would be worthless if found alone), probably up the value of the set considerably.

Yea the swizzels are just....twigs. Wicker chair type twigs with a few sharp prongs on the end. I absolutely could not believe that one was sitting in all four of these mugs, each in perfect condition. I guess thats why I was concerned at first that they were reproductions. I was just about pleading with the antique lady to tell me their story. How on earth did 4 of these mugs get to California and make it into the store with the sticks intact? Out of context the swizzels could not be any less impressive. Why would anyone but a collector keep them together? But there they were. Sadly she had no information for me.

Does anyone have a rough time period for these mugs?

I have a few of the bamboo mugs (also with swizzles) that I inherited from my aunt, along with about six of the black moai mugs. She moved to Vegas in the mid-60s and said she frequented the Aku Aku into the mid 70s. She thinks the bamboo mugs were some of the first ones they took home but couldn't be completely certain.

I wonder if the menu collectors here could help? I have a set of menus from (I think) the late 60's and the bamboo mugs/swizzles are still pictured.
