Whoa!!!! What a great find Tom. Amazing mug, I love the glaze and the detail is fantastic. Often the Spurlin Cobra Fang mug can lack in detail but this one is fantastic. Curious what the story behind it is. I would imagine that they got a Spurlin mug and made their own version of it. Or... Spurlin copied this one.

Congrats Tom!

Yet another mug from from Doc's Town & Country in Toronto, Canada:





This one is NOT pictured in their menu although it does list the Cobra's Fang cocktail.

I stumbled on it while looking for the Spurlin's Islander Cobra's Fang Mug, but found this one instead.

It looks a lot like the Spurlin mug.

Here's a tiki bowl that got away from me but I'm sure it'll find a good home.

The first pic is a menu image from the very beginning of this thread.

The rest are from the auction that ended yesterday.

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?

@ Trader Tom... Yes, I saw that bowl 2. Awesome. The Beauce pottery stuff is all a bit of an oddity to me. Seems to be a copy of a Spurlin bowl (like the Beauce Vicious Virgin Bowl).

And yes, most of the Ren Clark mugs on the menu have all been well documented and found for the most part. With the exception of a few like the Cannibal Bowl.

Personally, found the Tiki Bowl from Johnny Quong's The Hawaiian:

Nice Johnny Quong's bowl!

Yeah, the Beauce stuff is weird. I'm like 99% that the arm in air version of the Vicious Virgin Bowl is Beauce, but I'd still like to see the bottom of one and see those Beauce numbers to verify. They numbered everything.

Today, we're used to people paying homage to older classic designs that have stood the test of time, but seems like the Canadians were on a faster time table and just duplicated what they liked based on what was hot at that moment in the US.

It's cool that strange old stuff keeps popping up, though. Keeps it interesting!

Lucky find of the Kalua Room Tiki mug!!!







For the Tiki Tiki



Super rare for sure. Not marked but matches the other 2 I have seen.





Not only is it rare, but an important one seeing how it is (most likely) theeee first tiki mug - circa 1954:

A cool Volcano Mug from the Kahala Hilton! Quite large with a straw hole.





A mug I have never seen before nor could find mentioned in a menu. No makers mark on the bottom.

The Kahala Hilt also has that super cool Tiki bowl from Terra Ceramics which is pictured in one of their menus.

(not mine FYI)

Here's a little Adele Davis, Sunset Shore Studio (SSS) beauty I found at an estate sale this weekend.
I now LOVE that rough-hewn yumminess of the homemade goodies from Hawaii!
I feel like I've seen a pic, but I can't find one.
Info, anyone? Did this drum appear elsewhere (not for a convention), as my brain keeps trying to tell me?
(And will any of you be at Tiki Oasis next week? I'm singing early Friday evening with Skip Heller; find me!)

I really like that drum design.

Nice find!

I've seen a blue version as well. It may still be for sale at the antique mall in Long Beach where I first saw it. Forget the name of the place but it's the big one with a basement and multiple rooms.

They had a pretty big sticker price on it as I recall.

Adele is one of those designers I feel like we've only scratched the surface on.

She was too talented not to have made more pieces over the years than what I've seen so far.

Yep. New ones keep popping up. House of KU has one with Maori designs that I thought was wicked.

At least since Waikiki Tiki: Art, History, and Photographs came out, we can put a name on them.
I did see that drum pop up on eBay once, but the seller wanted like $24 bucks for one with a chip, (And like 12 shipping.) so I passed.

Btw, nice Kahala volcano. Wish I'd had that when I was working on the book! I do own the Terra Ceramics kahala bowl.



Here is the Daga drum that they sold at Tavanas revue at the Hawaiian Hut.

The Hawaiian Eye bowl by Terra Ceramics depicted on the Hilton Hawaiian Village menu I scored today .It was relisted three times on flea bay and no one grabbed it because it didn't have the key word tiki in the description.
