Glassware companies.

These two companies supplied the bulk of the more elaborate glassware to Polynesian restaurants. With designs such as stemware glasses with a jockey or tiki stem by Morgantown. Both companies produced the Port and Starboard mugs and times.A note about the Tiki stemware for Trader Vic's, the design shows up on many menus but I believe that Vic's was the only one who used it as he patented the design in 1960. As far as I can tell Morgantown was the only maker of the various types of logo stemware.

Imperial Glass Corp.(Bellaire OH.)

Here is a catalog page from Imperial Glass from 1966 showing a nice selection of glassware.

On the left is the "Big Shot" by Imperial for the Gun Club Punch cocktail also made in red. In the middle is the "Little Shot" shot glass. Next is the "Port Light" for the cocktail of the same name also the green version shown in the catalog the "Starboard Light" for the cocktail of the same name.


Morgantown Glass Works, (Morgantown WV)

Morgantown was known for it's high quality stemware supplied to various restaurants. The Derby Daqari made for the Mai Kai and three diferent styles of stemware with a Tiki stem for Trader Vic's are great examples. Morgantown also made Port and Starboard Light mugs for Imperial when Imperial could not fill the order themselves.
