Sven, I'll have to do a little better on the description end of things so the new folks have an idea of whats out there and what items were used for. Now from a small piece of china from Trader Vic's a soy sauce decanter. About 3" high and 4" long. No makers mark but looks similar to the one in the OMC catalog photo in Sven's post.





OK, Trav, you got me on board:

First, for general interest, some more pages from the OTAGIRI catalog, their Tiki mugs were just a small side business, they had tons of Japanese pottery and restaurant table decor that was non-Tiki:



And here some table mats:



What's so funny, huh!?

But back to the specific motto of this thread, Tiki restaurant china. I don't have much, I only picked it up as I went along, and I always thought it to be a bit nerdy to get into the manufacturer details....cuz I am NOT a collector nerd, ya know, no I ain't!

Aku Aku Las Vegas:



Islander, L.A.:




Trader Vic's:




This one is "fake", it's a contemporary souvenir plate:



Last not least, my Stephen Crane Kon Tiki tea pot!:




Now if we only could get Kate to post her wares, I think she has a bunch!

Fantastic post Sven. Thanks for the input. I'll add those makers to the list in the first part of the thread. I have never seen that plate from the Aku Aku before. Thanks again.

Forgot one, just a little Fu-joint soy dish:

Now THAT's great china!

Wow!! so far we have eighteen manufacturing companies and twenty seven restaurant represented on this one thread. Thanks Sven and Kate I have added the items you both posted to the list at the beginning of the thread. That Ren Clark plate is one of my favorites and was made by sterling as well. Thanks again for the posts.

Big Kahuna, now you dunit...we have to start a silverware list . Which fits into the category well. You have a great collection of china. Thanks for adding it. That Pacific Hut plate was made by Shenango for the distributor and is a great find. Are those small cups for tea or are they condiment holders? I was never sure about that. Thanks again for your post and I'll edit the china list and start up a silverware list.

Hey, Trav! I was really psyched to find both of those plates. The cups are definitely tea cups. I would have bought the Ren Clark plate, but somebody satrted the bidding war & I'm off to Vegas in an hour, so I won't be around to see it end. Oh, well! Frankie's here I come! Yahoo!

Here are my additions. Sorry for the BlackBerry photos!









The bottom of this one was too faint..it was made by Sterling.








This is a new TV's plate from Vegas. No mark on the bottom.

I saw this image while I was doing a bit of online research. From the Chi Chi Club in Palm Springs about 1952. A great dinner plate with an image of a Leeteg velvet also used on the menu cover.
