This 1960 Ren Clark Polynesian Village Fort Worth menu was posted on Big Kahuna's FB page. Are these real mugs? I'm not a collector but I haven't noticed anything like the Black Lady mug or the Cannibal Bowl set-up. Also, what's up with the "Rum or Beverage Locker" for $12 per year. From the menu descriptions it looks like you furnished you own liquor? They suggest a liquor for each drink but I guess you could mix it with whatever you wanted?





Shoutout to Tattoo for his recent thread here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=52822&forum=5&vpost=786058 on the possible connections between the Polynesian Village, Fort Worth, and the Mexico Mauna Loa, which included this photograph of the Cannibal Bowl setup (the "Festin Salvaje" at the Mauna Loa).



Ordinary glassware (e.g., the goblet, snifter, lo-ball, etc.) aside, are there any mugs on this menu remaining unaccounted for?

Crypto Mug?



Well, not really. It is the Waikiki Trader Vic's Tiki Liki. Fair to call it a Crypto Version though since you can actually tell what it is.



Somehow this mug became this :-0





The rougher less detailed version here made by Polynesian Pottery. I am guessing this more detailed version (i.e. earlier version) was made by someone else. Unlike the Polynesian Pottery bottom, the more detailed version mug has a slight concave bottom leaving an unglazed white ring. Which I usually associate with more professional manufacturers.



The flat glazed bottom is usually a tell tale sign of a hobbyist mug. I'm not a potter but I am sure there is a reason between the 2 different bottoms of mugs. If someone could illuminate me it would be much appreciated It would seem that Polynesian Pottery created a mold from this more refined version creating a much less detailed copy of it. Speculation I know....

On Ooga Mooga I did find another version that matches the more detailed one. This one form LOL Tiki. Again, the more concave bottom with the white unglazed ring.





Can anyone speculate who might have made this other version?

Tattoo, you need to make an extra mold piece in order to create a concave bottom. Having an extra piece does increase the risk of the mold leaking but if you know what you're doing that really shouldn't be an issue. The main reason not to make one is the extra labor involved.
