Thanks for posting the rare May Fair Beachcomber mugs. If you look at the British Pathe photo the mug in front of the women at the bar is for sure the Crypto mug.



(above the S and U).

What is the link to that British Pathe video?

Hello, I have found this unusual Tiki, set in a lucite or old plastic weight. I will attach the photo. Does anyone know anything about this piece?

No the mug above the S and U is different crypto-mug to the toggle tiki mug, it features in another part of the beachcomber footage. It has a strange cross shaped patter near it's top, I WISH SOMEONE WOULD POST THE PICTURES FROM THE BEACHCOMBER MENU TRADER JIM so we can have a better idea of the mugs were looking for.

Spanish tikidom has its own list of misteriosos crypto mugs.
I know it is probably a question of limited interest here, but I was really willing to add something to this awesome thread. And who knows, maybe even I can find some answers about one of this raros artifacts.

Just picked up this Fan from the Waiakea resort Village & The Marketplace in Hilo, Hawaii.


The reverse is a drink menu and has some cool volcano mugs I've never seen.

The shell bowl was utilized by many establishments based upon menu research. There are at least two versions that I'm aware of with one them produced by Spurlin.

Aku Aku's Pua-Pule bowl


Spurlin version of shell bowl




Here are some different views of the bowl showing the bottom detail

Sabu,

I can't remember ever seeing a mug with the Club Luau name on it. The postcard I have does not show any mugs on the bar tables either.

Here is another one that I have not seen before from an illustrated drink menu that came from the Hawaiian Isle in Florida (from ebay).

Most of the mugs look like standard issues from the Otagiri catalog



But how about this Navy Grog mug with the distinctive handle?




DC



Sorry for the looong delay...finally got another computer and a working modem




Marked Napcoware, c-5993, sticker is hard to read NATIONAL Potteries, Cleveland O.,made in Japan...looks like they "borrowed" alittle from Polystone etc...















Aloha, Freddie

The Halemaluna volcano mug exists! I have that one and you can see it in Waikiki Tiki. It was made by Terra Ceramics. Mine is brown with a white glaze on the lava. I have also seen another once with purple lava.

Ok here is an interesting thrift score from today. After consulting with my pal TikiRoyale, we both did a search & couldn't find a match for this one: a drum mug from Trader Vics Hawaii?
It is fairly lightweight & faintly marked on the bottom "Trader Vic's Hawaii".
I got excited when I saw it, because I knew what I thought it was, but didnt recognize the style. When I looked at the bottom I got a nice warm fuzzy!
Anyone seen/have this mug? I couldn't find anything like it on the TV coctail menus I've seen. Any info is greatly appreciated.

I looked at the bottom too and couldn't see anything!

How great that still, to this day, completely unheard-of, never seen before mugs can be found in the wild. It ain't exactly the Mai Kai PNG drum mug, but the Tapa colors and look are great.

just snapped those pics quickly, clearly not the best quality. I can take better shots if anyone is interested.

Got this mug a few weeks ago at an antique fair in Oakland. The seller said that he thought it was a hobbyist mug. I wasn't sure but I really like the mug, great colors and seemed like an early version of or inspiration for the Tepco or Harvey's Hula Girl mug.



Then the other day, in a posting discussing a photo of the original Trader Vic Kava Bowl, DustyCajun Posted This picture from a 1944 Life Magazine article on Trader Vic...



The Fog Cutter Mug in the 1944 image struck me as very familiar...




Sure looks like it could be the same mug to me but I'd appreciate peer review...

I originally posted this in Tiki Finds but I think the scrutiny in the Crypto Thread might be a little more rigorous...
What does everyone think?

Cheers,
John
