My turn to ask "What the hell?"

I found four tiki mugs the are basically the head of the Hawaiian Village Nui Nui Tiki Mug.
Anyone ever seen these? Home project? Or did I find something rare and cool?

Tiki Pug,

Nice find! Never seen that one before.

On a slightly different note, anybody recognize this Mystery Tiki Bar? A couple of cute gals framed by a painted Tiki and a Clam-Shell fountain.



Nice Tiki lamps and mugs.



Where, I ask, was this?

Bong, wrong! Good guess but I don't think Trader Dick's had a Coconut mug. The place looks somewhat "home-made".

Maybe it's the interior of this other "Mystery" Tiki restaurant bar I posted years ago from Florida!

The more I look at it, the more I want to say it is from England. A Beachcomber perhaps? There is a big pot of tea on the table, not American style.

I have also seen painted Tiki like that in photos of the Butlins Beachcombers.

DC,

I'm not giving up especially since you are are the one who posted the
lamp that made me think it was Trader Dick's in the first place.

Those lamps here are not wooden, but ceramic, the same mold than the popular (back then) black Moai mugs



and plastic string lamps



Oceanic arts made the wooden versions



which are by the way NOT identical with the Duncan mold Moai



I have seen these black ceramic Moai-on-brass-base lamps somewhere before...but where?

And what is up with those weird rattan handle "gallows" sticking into the room?
That Tea pot looks like it has an OMC sticker on it - but it would be much to big for the regular under-mug sticker, so it can't be...

I give up!

It's totally fits for a Chinese food based menu...

Interesting! What led you to that guess: The Tiki in the b.g., the waterfall architecture, the table lamps, the furniture...?
