Although I love to collect the mugs, I am not as knowledgeable as many of you when it comes to identifying them, or knowing what's hot and what's not. In my mind, the ones I think are cool are hot, and the ones I don't find as aesthetically pleasing, are not...

However, I still think it's worthwhile to know what you all would consider yoour top ten most desirable mugs, and why!

This is a hard list to have to come up with, so most of mine is a list of categories, rather than individual mugs:

1. mugs with restaurant or bar names on them
2. mugs marked that commemorate an event
3. mugs with nicely hand-painted detail
4. mugs with lids
5. clam shell bowls
6. bowls with Tiki feet
7. mugs marked "Tiki Bob's"
8. mugs from "The Tikis"
9. mugs with hula girls
10.my Tiki Central Shecky mug!

I will throw out a few others for consideration:

Islander (L.A.) Coffee Grog, Tiki Bob, Luau 400, Mauna Loa, Ren Clark Hula Girl, Skipper Kent, Hawaiian Room (NYC), and Don Beachcomber, MY Mai-Kai Sepik/PNG drum mug!.

I'd offer that there are tiers or "levels" of desired mugs. Ordinal ranking would be difficult, but one can easily see certain mugs in the top tier, some a bit less rare in the next...so on. Of course, whatever one wants next is always the most desired!

And of course, what I have for sale in the next Midnite Tiki Mug Blow-Out Spectacular Funfest!

My favorite mugs are the ones from Ren Clarks Polynesian Village. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of these mugs. Here are some of my other favorites in no particular order. I only have two of these mugs.



The "Blue Eye" and "The Bird of Paradise" from Steven Crane. He made some cool mugs


The "Idols Cast" and the "Mystery Drink" from the Kahiki


These are from the Islander. "The Maori" and the "Andress Bumatay"

From the Hawaii Kai in New York. One of my favorites

Johny Quongs Utah

Hawaiian Room, New York

Kelbos "The Smiley" LA.

The Mauna Loa in Detroit.

From the collection of Trader Pup "The Zombie Village" San Francisco

Trader Vic's Suffering Bastards.

What did I forget?.

Thank you so much for posting those pics, that is fantastic! The Bird of Paradise is truly hypnotic. Was it only from one particular Steve Crane bar, ore were they in the chains?

The "Crane" mugs were used in the Kon-Tiki locations as well as The Luau. Least that is what I understand...belive Sven relates as much in BOT as well.

The "Bird of Paradise" is turned away on my shelf, to avoid direct eye-to-eye contact. The "Freaky Chicken" as I call it is just too damn freaky. Scares you if you look too long. That bird is ip-no-tyzin'!
