I got ahold of an R-88 aka "Kona Kai" that is marked only "Orchids of Hawaii - Japan" but has no number at all. Any info? Is this a common occurance?
Thanks.

Yes. It's not uncommon to find a number of Orchids mugs unmarked. Certainly the earlier ones that had paper labels rather than being marked in the mold.

An Orchids of Hawaii mug with a paper label? Wow - that's news to me. I've seen different embossings, Japan, Taiwan, and ink stamped labels, but never a paper Orchids of Hawaii label. When I've seen an Orchids design with a blank bottom, I've assumed it was recent Chinese (and I think I was probably right based on other clues).

Thanks for the info, Mr. C. Any R#'s in particular which have the paper labels?

My R-99 Mermaid mugs have paper labels.

I HAVE A COUPLE R-88'S THAT ARE MARKED ORCHIDS OF HAWAII JAPAN . I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE THAT'S ACTUALLY MARKED R-88 UNLESS IT HAS A PAPER TAG.

Very cool info. I checked, and don't have any Orchids of Hawaii mugs with a paper label - something new to look for. I saw the write-ups and pictures in Tiki Quest, and now I know to focus on R-88s and R-99s - thanks!
