Here are a few of the many faces and varieties of the classic Leilani mug along with some notes on maker's marks (a few of these mugs are distant relatives):

  • Row 1: USA "Tiki Leilani", Orchids Of Hawaii (OOH) R91 Plain, OOH "Leilani", USA "Tiki Leilani" (Green)
  • Row 2: "Braniff Int'l", "Diamond Head", OOH R91H "Hawaiian Inn", "Hawaiian Village"
  • Row 3: USA (Rust/Gold), Unmarked (Chubby), "Tiki Tiki Tiki" (New), Unmarked (New)
  • Row 4: Tahiti (Green), Tahiti (Blue), Enco Tall, Enco Handle



I'm sure there are many more but that's a good start. Also, I would love to see images of an original Orchids of Hawaii ordering catalog if anyone has one.

I saw this exact Leilani in an antique store in Dallas for $36.00 (didn't buy it). There was a sign next to it that said "Only used once on flight from DFW to Honolulu." So whats the deal with Braniff? Is this an extremely rare mug? Is $36.00 a good price? ME NEED INFO!!

Cool, thanks MauiTiki! I'd love to see the rest of that catalog sometime. I didn't realize that OOH were still in business in 1988 (see cover). Now, if we could just find someone with the elusive OMC catalog...

MM, OOH didn't go out of business until the 90's sometime. In addition to the catalog pictured above, I also have one dated 1991.

The catalog I'd really like to get a hold of is the one from CocoJoe's!

This lantern looks like it also belongs to the Tiki Leilani tradition

ModMana this is the only other page I have an image of. I think these were the only pages with Tiki Mugs.

I can't believe that the lowly Leilani mug is receiving so much attention. He's gotten a bad reputation but it really is a quality mug...

Sorry JD, the only ones in my photo that I actually own are the brown and green glazed mugs that say "TIki Leilani" across the bottom. Those are definitely 2-sided. The others, I'm not sure.

Thanks MauiTiki for posting the other OOH catalog page. I expected that it would have contained more tiki items. There are several OOH mugs (not in your catalog) that are pretty obscure. Maybe those were produced in earlier years?

I went to a city-wide garage sale held in a parking structure this past sunday. I wasn't having too much luck, but then my wife came running up to me with arms flailing and a big grin on her face. By her excitement, you'd think she had found a dozen Witco fountains for $10 each. She grabbed me by the arm and dragged me over to this table:




HUMPH!

Hey F Z .............Isn't that the "rare" tiki Leilani 10 pin bowling set ????

Well at least the Mrs. was trying to help.
Better luck next time! And one last thought,
that table represents more mugs than I will see all summer at the many yard sales I will go to here in the tiki-barren midwest.

Aloha collecting people!

So today I had one of my rare Tiki mug encounters at a fave Manhattan flea market and as it turns out it was a good one. I'll tell ya, it's very difficult to find anything Tiki collectible around here. In the last year I have only seen two or three Hawaii Kai collectible mugs and an Otagari, but these were all out of the price range when I found them. Today it seems it all gelled when I found two of these Tiki Leilani mugs. From what I have read here it seems like these are the latent/anti-heros of the Tiki mug world. Why is that? The guy originally wanted $10 a piece for them but I got him to give me the pair for $15. Pretty cool. The model I got was the straight up Orchids of Hawaii R91 (rust color) with 'Tiki Leilani' on the base. There's no USA marking on the bottom, just blank.

Also last week, I found a pair of lanterns for $9, very similiar the ones Naugatiki posted earlier on this thread. They are the same candle-lit/hanging lanterns but the ones I have are rust in color, and have slanted, rather than round eyes. There are no markings anywhere to indicate where these came from. The lady that sold them to me said they were 'from the 50s or 60s', but ain't that always the case? Anybody have any info on these?

Two weeks with some decent Tiki finds, and thanks to my fiancee for pointing them out, otherwise I prolly woulda glossed right over them. Hope this is the start of a trend for me...
