Regardless of the year it was made -- although it would be great to know!-- I really love that red glaze. The detail pops so much better than on the black versions.

Hope some info surfaces for you Tattoo--thanks for sharing!

I'm not sure how rare it is but I have the Tapa Punch Mug from the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Not sure if this octopus mug fits in here with crypto, but I found this one that holds 26oz at a flea market this past weekend. Sorry about the hula girl mug, but this was the only photo I took of the mugs found that day. It looks like the one in the Trader Vic's menu but doesn't have the Trader Vic's mark. I did read something here by Kohalacharms on octopus mugs.



thanks

Saw this online and it looked different. It seemed like a perfect cross between the 1944 Trader Vic's Samoan Fog Cutter mug and the later Tepco Hula girl mug with the bird.



It most resembles the 1944 TV mug but it's not. It's definitely different. Besides the added birds on top, and it's also a different manufacturer. Not as handmade and it has a smaller concave bottom.



No doubt a copy of the original TV mug which then morphed into the more common Tepco Hula mug with the birds. Which then morphed into the Harvey's hula girl mug by Otagiri.



Anyone have any thoughts on this???

Great detective work! Looks like the missing link in the evolutionary chain for sure.

Yup, that's the TV Waikiki octopus. There are several styles of the mug by Polynesian Pottery that the drink was served in, but that's the earliest. Lucky you!
