I am sorry, but in my book Orchids mugs are not that valuable, they came in on the tail end of the Tiki era, it is Otagiri and Paul Marshall that really were there in the heyday. Orchids of Hawaii supplied many of the 70/80s Chinese Polynesian places in the Mid-west and East Coast which to varying degrees represent the devolution of Tiki. Not to say that some are not fine examples of individual interpretation of the style, but most used plastic, painted Tikis form the Orchids catalog.
