From Mauna Loa, Detroit, MI, a Tiki Location
Manufactured by HF Pottery
Designed by Gabe Florian
Produced from ?-?
Edition of ?
The main body of this mug is designed to look like a section of yellow bamboo, and the handle is actually a bird, climbing up the bamboo. The mug features the same high quality double-wall construction as many of the Steve Crane Associates designs. Gabe Florian was associated with the design of the Mauna Loa and this mug is quite likely his design (although this is not verified). The drink that came in this mug was called the Polynesian Pidgeon. As the menu says, "Two or more will stimulate you enough to give yourself away. Watch out!"

It is the holy grail for me for its design quality. I knew not one thing about tiki and happened to flip through one of the books and thought it was amazingly special even then w/o a care about the history. Among all my favorites, it is the very last mug I would part with.
