Also, as bigbrotiki mentioned in that post, patents are also a good place to look. Can you do a free patent search online going back this far?

As I read this sentence the first time, I thought it said '...parents are also a good place to look.' And it occurred to me - surely there must be a dated photograph in a family album somewhere, showing a night out on the town, with drinks on the table in the aforementioned mugs. None in my family, though they remember a local Houston place called Tiki Tiki that served in the mugs starting around 1960.

Yes and No. But the patent thing has been discussed quite a few times here on TC. Too busy to find the threads at the moment.

I found a few posts, but didn't see any indicating a way to search for patents prior to 1963 without just browsing through the images. I didn't uncover anything new when I tried, just the Vic Bergeron patents mostly.

Maybe someone could look up these people and see if they are still around.
