It's not exhaustive (yet!), but you can do a search on Ooga-Mooga with the Manufacturer restricted to Orchids of Hawaii:

Orchids of Hawaii Mugs in Ooga-Mooga

Interesting to see that catalog cover on the other thread (thanks MauiTiki). Here's an old newspaper ad I posted earlier in another topic...



At the time I was pretty sure this must've been a flower shop with the same name, but seeing that catalog with the similar-but-not-identical script logo makes me less certain. Odd that there's no mention of what they make or sell though. Noteworthy that the company itself is based in Japan.

Maybe I'm asking a lot of dumb questions (actually, I know I am) but - what the heck WAS orchids of Hawaii?

Was it Japanese owned? Was it a 2nd generation Hawaiian/Japanese company? Or was it run by some guy who just had all the mugs made in Japan? A disgruntled OA ex-employee? How far back do they go? There must be a story behind it all, shrouded in mystery upon mystery. Or is this all common knowledge that I've simply never heard anything about?

They made really cool lamps, but where? Were they made on the mainland? Or what???

I photographed parts of a 1991-92 Orchids of Hawaii wholesale catalog at Oceanic Arts last year; the address on the cover of the catalog is 3703 Provost Ave., Bronx, NY 10466

That's not counting variations in color or slight modifications. I have 23 actual Orchids mugs and then I have some representations i.e. Dynasty knockoffs. I found this old thread and with it a link to some Orchids catalog pages. Does anyone have complete catalogs and would they be interested in scanning them in here? Here's my list.

If I remember correctly that is referred to as the smiling big nose tiki.
