Mauna-Kai 10" plate. Same as the Explorer East plate except for the logo and color.



A Mexican Mauna Loa tea cup. Cool logo I've always thought...

Found this Polynesian Village rarity recently at flea market near Fort Worth and was thrilled to add it to my collection. Not sure I've seen it on any of the forums as of yet. I'd love to talk with any DFW area historians about the place. I've accumulated a pretty sizable collection of artifacts, history and photographs of the old Western Hills hotel and was excited to hear about some potential publishing projects. Look forward to talking more soon.

Nice Polynesian Village teapot!

A couple more items for the archives:

Teacup from the Reef located in Casper Wyoming, made by Wellsville China.






Teacup from the Aloha Restaurant to match the teapot posted by Trav, made by Jackson China.





And, a plate from the Island House made by Jackson China.

Great additions guys. DC I love that last image you posted. Paul MacCobb is one of my favorite mid century designers. Interesting to see that he designed dinnerware for that location.

Found four of these plates recently and have struck out on finding out who made it or where it may have been used. No markings on the back of the plates.

Cool find Kiara. The Luau cup is one I have not seen before. Looks like they "borrowed" their logo from the Luau 400 in NYC. As seen in this image posted by DC.
