Does anyone know any history on the mugs that were made for Kona Kai in Pennsylvania? It seems to me that I have seen mugs listed on E-bay by both Orchids of Hawaii and Otagiri. Does anyone know if both companies did in fact make mugs for Kona Kai, and if so, were they the same mold? I know they are at least similar in appearance, but not sure if identical (much the way Orchids and OMC Fu Manchu's are similar but not exactly the same).

I have one mug from the Kona Kai that used to be in Philly PA. It says Orchids of Hawaii on the bottom and the tiki has green rhinestone-type eyes. It does not say Kona Kai on it but I know it came from there because my friend who gave it to me got it at the bar when he was little.
Make mine a mai tai!
