Orchids of Hawaii R-73A Nani Mug

Orchids of Hawaii R-73A Nani mugs

At nine ounces, these vintage glazed ceramic mugs, produced by Orchids of Hawaii, are small. On the mugs is a dancing woman. She is wearing a grass skirt and has yellow lei around her neck and a red or purple hibiscus in her hair.

All four mugs are marked “Orchids of Hawaii” and “Japan” on the bottom. However, the two lighter called mugs, on the left, are additionally marked “R-73A”. The variations in color highlight the handpainted nature of these classic mugs.

These and similar mugs can be found on page 91 of Tiki Quest - Collecting the Exotic Past by Duke Carter.

Found in the Hawaiiana, Mug, Orchids of Hawaii, and Polynesian Pop Collections.
