A new Canadian entry from my matchbook collection - the Aloha Bar at the Dragon Inn in Lafleche, Quebec.

Another Canadian find, the Waikiki Restaurant in Ontario.



Served Tiki drinks in all of the standard Tiki mugs.



Don't know if it was related to the Waikiki in Vancouver?

Nothing says "Waikiki" like a Chinese junk!

"Where beautiful food is served beautifully" - classic!

Indeed, that rendering of the tray-bearing Wahine is great: As you said, one can clearly make out a volcano bowl, a Tiki mug, a skull mug, a pineapple mug, a buddha mug, a coconut mug, and a Dr. Fong mug. Wish it would exist unobstructed by the font.

Found this cool Beauce version of the Paul Marshall Peanut mug.




Marked Beauce Canada 1758. Does anyone know how to decipher this number. I looked for awhile online but only could guestimate late 50s/early to mid 60s.

Be curious to know which one came first. Shockingly I don't have a Paul Marshall version of this mug to compare but it looks identical with the exception of the top and base. The Beauce looks a little less detailed which indicates a copy but it hard to believe a reputable pottery company like Beauce would make a direct copy like that.

Hello Tattoo,

If you go on page 209 of the Céramique de Beauce book published in 2005 (Daniel Cogné et al., Éditions GID), you'll find that your mug was designed and firstly produced in 1963.

Céramique de Beauce produced about twelve tiki pieces. The number under your mug is a production number. From the 1940's to the 1980's, Beauce produced more than 5000 different pieces, that were all numbered.

At that time, it was not rare for the pottery companies to copy each other. Beauce produced some pieces that were designed by other companies, and companies produced pieces that were designed by Beauce.

This is a really nice piece. Beauce tiki pieces are rare to find, even here in Québec.

Aloha!
