And what about that GOLDEN mug!? Was it perhaps part of the under-researched "Golden Tiki" phase!?

Our beautiful Bumatay bowl is most definitely an original. Gecko also confirmed it wasn't one of his.




It's a beauty - what a great find! I wonder; did Gecko cast molds of those feet for his Mt. Bumatay?

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

Kohalacharms,

Thanks for the look at that Clam shell bowl. I seem to have seen other types in drink menus.

Here is a photo from a Hawaiian restaurant brochure featuring the Spencecliff restaurants. This one is from the Old Plantation.


The interesting thing is that they used the mugs that were designed for Trader Vics, which at that time was also a Spencecliff restaurant.




Looks like some really cool ones including the bowl I posted previously



And maybe that one the 1961 Surf just posted.



Does anybody have that Skull Mug?

DC

Back to the Wacky Hawaiian Trader Vic's Menu - was the Pino Frio served in an actual pineapple or was it served in a pineapple mug?



There is some discussion of a Trader Vic's pineapple mug in this
Dead Sea Scroll but the pictures are either gone or scrambled.

BB,

I think that is the ceramic pineapple mug shown on the table in the photo I posted.

So here is the Pineapple Tiki Mug. This one is the one from the smaller photo and obviously different than the one in the larger image.

It's a Louie B so you all know...If you want an image of the bottom, let me know and I will post it.

Here are the ones I have, two next to each other, one with 6 rings and one with 7 rings.











O.K. mine are the six ring variety but notice the colors. Fakes? Or were there a lot of colors in the "real" glasses?

Anyone?
