I did a search online and found this:

From JetSet NYC:
Orchids Of Hawaii

(1-800-223-2124)...a restaurant supply company with an exotica mail order catalog. Fringed table skirts ($3.50 a running foot), bottles of flambe (6 bottles for $61), a complete luau decorating kit ($31.95) and much more!



After searching 800# directories, Orchids of Hawaii appear to be operational. Anyone try calling the number?

I've heard rumors from some pretty good sources here on TC that Orchids and Dynasty are one in the same. Name change for legal reasons. Anyways Dynasty has a website and their catalog is online. Looks pretty similar to the Orchids catalog. I'm going to update the list I put up earlier with the Orchids catalog numbers and then a second column for the corresponding Dynasty catalog numbers. Not everything in the Orchids catalog seems to have made it over to Dynasty and there are some new things in the Dynasty catalog that I don't think were ever in the Orchids catalog. I have some pieces marked Orchids on the bottom with the "R" number and then corresponding piece with Dynasty's "DW" number. I wonder if the 800 numbers are the same?

No, 800 numbers are different. Dynasty is 800-828-0810.

I just noticed that you are missing another one that I have. R-73B - it is just like R-73A just larger. They are pictured together on page 91 in Tiki Quest.

I did a quick search on "3703 Provost Ave, Bronx" and found that that address is now home to a DVD store called Love Shack III, Phone:(718) 515-6969

Tried the Orchids number several times. Busy every time. Did a reverse look up on that number and got nothing. My guess is that is no good.

I've been working on organizing my Orchids of Hawaii mugs. I'm trying to come up with complete list of what's out there. I've come up with 42 so far. 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. Can anyone fill in the gaps?
R1 - Headhunter
R2 - X Eyes
R3 - Jewel Eyes
R5 - Hut Tiki
R6 - Bamboo bundle
R8 - Three face bucket
R10 - Skull
R11 - Rum Barrel
R12 - Kahuna coffee
R13 - Coconut
R14 - Scorpion bowl
R15 - Pineapple w/lid
R18 - Bora Bora
R21 - Samurai
R22 - Geisha
R23 - Jurojin
R70
R71 - Ku
R72 - Easter Island
R73 - Red hula
R73A - Nani
R74
R76 - Lono
R78 - Hula
R79 - Lani
R80 - Surfing boy
R80A - Surfing girl
R82 - Fu Manchu
R86A - Compote
R88 - Kona Kai
R90 - Deluxe coconut
R91 - Leilani
R92 - Confucius
R93 - China Doll
R94 - Volcano bowl w/ center
R94A - Volcano w/o center
R95 - Hotei
R96 - Parasol girl
R97 - Buddha
R98 - Hat girl
R99 - Mermaid
R122 - Neko Cat



Just thought I would add to the list here. Dave & I had dinner tonight with Velveteen Lounge at ING'S. Kelly & I each picked up a nice Orientala Girl in a celadon green. It's marked Orchids of Hawaii R-126. Will post a photo tomorrow in the sunlight. For some reason my flash is over exposing my photos.. Has anyone else seen these?

Nothing earth (or Mug) shattering, but an interesting ad from a Aug 16, 1952 NYC Guide book....OGR?

I would say that it's a Kokeshi Doll mug. Similar to the Benihana Kokeshi mug on the right.
