The patent search is a great way to kill some time.

DC, That's definitely from Chicopee. My buddy has a glass with the same graphics. I was watching that & her other serving ware auctions, but they got too rich for my blood. I'm pinching pennies right now.

Big kahuna,

I was watching those as well, the plates were all very nice and sold for handsome prices in today's market.

Here is another plate from the auction - from the Bali Hai and also made by Jackson China. There was no location identified in the auction.

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.

Trav,

Found this photo of the Kapiolani Drive In Restaurant that matches the plate. It was located in Honolulu.

Here is a great little teapot that was on eBay awhile ago. Made by Jackson China for the Aloha Restaurant in Rochester NY. Nice rendering of the restaurant on it.

Took this picture awhile ago, but forgot to post it.
In Moundsville, WV there's a museum at the mound from which the town takes it's name, exhibits talk about local history in addition to the Adena people who built the mound and one is titled: "Homer Laughlin China Company: West Virginia’s Gift to the World". In this exhibit they have "the OTHER Great Wall of China"
And wouldn't you know it, there on the wall is Homer Laughlin's Trader Vic's logo plate.


Homer Laughlin's mentioned in this thread, the HLC plate with the menehune border is shown, and the TV logo plate from Sterling China, but it looks like they produced these as well at some point.

If you want to know more about the mound:
http://www.wvculture.org/museum/GraveCreekmod.html
The plate on wall of china is shown in the video at 3:09.

It's very close to Young's Cafeteria, which is tiki in WV!

At an area estate sale last week I found a binder full of Hall China (East Liverpool, OH) brochures.
But the one that thrilled me was the one for their
"Dynasty of extraordinary colors...

captured in a variety of Chinese, Japanese, Polynesian table top designs"

I knew that had a few shapes (I have the shell and coconut) but didn't know that they marketed to this market!
I was really thrilled because I had just picked up and put down this lovely lady:

I left with her and the brochure.

That's pretty damn cool. Was there anybody there to talk to about its origins?

Nobody! and no other Hall china to be found. It was the second day of the sale and I think that must've sold already (and the staff wasn't interested in chatting up some crazy man about an old piece of wood.)
