How about some silverware or flatware as it's known the the biz I guess. Must be allot of it around as it won't break.

Trav,

Here is a compote bowl with the unmistakable logo from the Don The Beachcomber's restaurant at the Sahara in Las Vegas (recently sold on ebay).







No maker marking on the bottom.

Thanks Dusty. I saw a plate go on eBay not to long ago with the same logo for the Vegas location. I have H.F. Coors as the maker of china for the other locations. Not sure if this one is the same company but would be great to find one with that logo with a makers mark. Thanks for the addition.

A rare Mauna Loa china dinner plate just sold on ebay. Now have it in the list on page one of the thread as being made by Jackson china.

Still haven't figured out where the Mauna Kai plate is from. It's in the book of tiki at towards the end.
The first one is from the Aloha Bar & Restaurant - 2775 Monroe Ave - Rochester, New York, United States:

Tahitiki,

Those are some killer plates. Never heard of either of those locations, thanks for posting.

Here is a Tepco plate made for Trader Vic's that I spied on ebay recently.

We can't leave out Frankoma Pottery who made some fine items for the Trade Winds in Tulsa OK. Including some great serve and tableware.

Tikisgrl. Thanks for the great additions. I have added them to the list on page one. The list is getting bigger. I believe your Diamond Head plate is from this location posted by Dustycajun. Thanks for posting.

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.






Posted this glass in finds. There doesn't seem to be a thread for glassware yet... So I'll add it here.

Trav - sorry I was late getting back to you on the mark on that Mauna Loa plate. Glad you found the info on eBay. Mine is marked Jackson China as well.

Here are a few more from my collection. First, a comparison of the Traders vs. Trader Vic's logos:


The Traders is marked Wallace China. The Trader Vic's is marked Sterling China.


The Hawaiian Gardens, (Holly, MI), dinner plate:



Tex Cook's Kai Kai. The only plate I know mixing Tapa with a Longhorn Steer motif.



And a few photos I've gleaned from eBay:

Hey, Sabu! Do you know how old that Trader Vic's plate is? I just got lucky on ebay & scored one for $7.99!
