Excellent topic you guys. There is a lady here at my local Swap Meet who calls me the, "Tiki King." She's great because she always holds any tiki mugs she finds and sells them only to me. Funny thing, here's what I got from her today. I paid her $20 for the whole lot. My favorite piece, however, was the Kon Tiki Ashtray. Here it is, enjoy...

Came across another Leilani, but with a twist...




It seems that a few years ago Wayne & Teauila decided to make their own mug for their venerable "Teauila's Hawaii" Polynesian extravaganza at the Hawaiian Inn in Daytona Beach.
Someone took a mold of a Leilani (maybe a Hawaiian Inn version?), but before molding, they used an old-school Dymo labelmaker to cover up the old name on the base. The quality of the detail is pretty bad, being at least a 2nd generation mold...
Anybody else found one of these?

Hello everyone, I have 2 one-sided mugs with Orchids of Hawaii- Japan on the bottom. No letters on the front bottom. These came from a restaurant called the Luau Room. It was closed many years ago. The colors are dark and light brown.

JonPez,

Wow this is interesting. Thanks for the pics.

I'm not sure if this mug is worth more or less than the original.

If Sven or Duke had it in their books, it would be worth a mint, but I'm afraid it falls into the category of "Homemade" tiki. Yes?

MauiTiki...
I thought the homemade ones were ones that people painted themselves. These were somewhat commercially available, being sold at the show. Not the most professional job, but still cool...

I consider "homemade" where a mold was made from an existing mug and made at home or at ceramics class.

I guess this falls into the middle somewhere.

Now Big Lot has it's own Tiki Leilani knock off in cheap plastic at 10% off. This one is also two sided but both sides are smiling.

In a couple years, this is what will pass as a Tiki Mug at your local Big Rots:

Just saw these turn up on eBay...

'TAHITI' ON THE FRONT, 'TUCSON, AZ' ON THE BACK

I don't know anything about them, but they sold for $50 (with three other mugs from the same restaurant).



I could just collect different Leilani Mugs, I can't believe how many variations turn up.

I have a few of those my sister brought back from her trip to Tucson from a vintage/junk/antique store. They're different colors too.

Actually the other three mugs were not from the Tahiti, rather they were old mugs from the still open Kon Tiki. Funny thing is that those six mugs were sold from Tucson, and weren't listed that well. I went into one of my regular thrift stores two days ago, and this time happened to mention that I collect tiki mugs. The lady behind the counter stated that they had had a set of six of them a couple weeks ago. My guess is that it was these same six mugs. Oh well... I have two of the Tahiti mugs, but only one of the Kon Tiki ones, in a totally different color.

Looks to me like somebody new is making these iconic mugs. I was given this unmarked Leilani by my friend 8ft Tiki, who pointed out the differences between this mug and other Leilanis. This one has a more peanuty appearance and its features are much sharper. The mouth is larger, too. There's no doubt what it is, but it's obviously a different sculpt.




Here's a generic OoH R-91 (left) for comparison.

Don't know anything about "Bades," but your Leilani sure looks better than mine!
