Very very nice Sabu. I have never heard of the Kai Kai. Great additions to the thread. This just keeps getting better. Thanks for the photos.

Big Kahuna you are building an impressive collection of china. I added the piece from the Islander to the list on page one. Thanks for sharing and keep posting those great finds.

Time for a list of flatware or more commonly known as silverware. Seems to be not as common as the china for some reason but fits the thread just fine.

Oneida Flatware

Tons of china makers and restaurants listed so far. I have added some more to the list. Here is a plate that I picked up awhile back. The plate is the same pattern used at the Hawaiian Cottage but in a yellow color. Thanks for all of the input and photos.

Trav,

I see you had this on your list, but did not see the image of this plate I saw on ebay.

The South Pacific from Buffalo China.







I wonder which South Pacific this is from? I don't think it is from the well known Hallandale location. This is like that SP mug mystery.

Found this big Trader Vic's Menehune platter today. Measures 14" by 11" and shows the Menehunes bringing food and a barrel of rum to the hut.
oops! I see Sven had posted this one way back on page two. I like it allot though.

Trav,

Here is a Mayer China plate from the Kapiolani Drive Inn Restaurant I saw on the net. I don't know much about this place, but it is one cool plate.

Here are a couple of patent drawings that I thought would fit in here. There are more out there for liquor decanters but I didn't think they fit the theme of the thread. First up a stemware glass made for Trader Vic's by Morgantown Glass. Dated 1958.



Closeup.


Patent drawing for Trader Vic"s skull mug dated 1939. Produced by Tepco. Though some may not consider this design a true Tiki mug the early patent date puts it in the running as one of the earliest mugs designed for a Polynesian restaurant in my view.
