I bought this a couple of months ago. It was too expensive, but I was bummed and needed to shop.

It was manufactured by Syracuse China.

I had the feeling that I'd seen it somewhere before, but my research skills have completely failed me on this one. Can anybody help me out, please?

Hello Kate

My guess is that this was stock restaurant ware for a generic run of the mill Polynesian establishment, you see them for Chinese, Western BBQ, Sea food places, etc...
Had it been for a particular location they would have added a logo or something to ID the place, the design is so sophisticated and the amount of colors took some work, why would they leave a name off?
There must be a catalog out there someplace that would quickly answer this question!

It is a beautiful piece in any case.

Geee, that sure is nice, perfect Tiki Modern. I can see how one might think this is a logo of a place, it seems familiar....but even my photographic memory has no file on this exact combination of PNG designs. The fishnet floats certainly indicate it was made for a Tiki bar, or for the Poly pop restaurant trade in general. There was a burger joint called "The Rigger" in Waikiki that had a PNG mask similar to the one on right on their matchbook.

Always good to get proof there still is stuff out there that has never been seen before. Thanks for saving it.

Although this isn't of any help, I did see this exact kind of plate sell on Ebay about 1 1/2 years ago. I lost that auction, but if memory serves me correctly, the plate sold for around $26.00.

Neat plate!

I am from Syracuse NY home of Syracuse China. I believe that at some point Syracuse China made china for home retail sale but that was before my time. They later specialised in restaurant and hotel china. For as long as I shopped there they were almost strictly restaurant and hotel. They used to have a really cool factory outlet store. They sold seconds. I have an awesome collection of plates. My wife doesn't like anything to match. It was perfect going to the factory store and getting seconds from all the restaurants and hotels. We have dinner parties and everyone gets a different plate from a different restaurant and it looks like we traveled the globe stealing place settings. I don't have any plates from Syracuse china like the one Kate has. That is a truly nice piece of china.

Here I am again, completely stumped by Syracuse China. This one looks really really familiar.

Anyone know of any restaurants that used this pattern?

Drawing a blank here, too, Kate. If this would be some place's logo Tiki, I would surely recognize it, but it does not ring a bell at all. It sure is a nice one, though!

Try looking in a "restaurant ware" book?

I've got a little more information on this first plate. There was one on ebay recently which was apparently a sample. It had this tag on the back.



What I'm not clear on is if the pattern was called Hawaiian Village or if it was used at the Hawaiian Village. If it's the latter, which I assume it is, then which Hawaiian Village?

Beautiful plate! Good whimsical interpretation of a Papua NG mask!
Great placement of the tikis and floats too! I wish someone made
Plates like these today. Looks like something tiki diablo would design.

Tiki Kate -I recently picked up that same first plate you posted off ebay.I believe it's
from the Hawaiian Village in Florida , but not 100% sure.I am still doing some research on it.
You have a good eye. referring to the first plate you posted .I think there is a postcard
from HV and you can see the plates on the dinner tables with this pattern on them, If I
am not mistaking.

This is slightly off topic. It has nothing to do with plate identification, but I found another piece of this Syracuse China Hawaiian Village pattern.
