    I'm afraid I only know this beauty as Higbee's "Hawaiian Lei"... Was there a different OMN (Original Manufacturer Name), or is that literally what this pattern is called? 6 3/4" diameter and 2" tall.
    Included is a picture of the Elusive Higbee! A little overhead light glare does the trick ;)

      Thank you!! I knew 'hawaiian lei' didn't sound right :)

      you're very welcome... often authors/collectors made up AKAs for patterns before catalogs were known to exist containing OMNs; unfortunately often these AKAs 'stick' rather than the OMN...
