Yee-haw! I finally found a great tiki mug here in Jacksonville. Got a Mark Thomas' Outrigger mug at the San Marco antique mall for 10 bucks. I know that's no epic bargain, but sure beats eBay + S&H. Plus I really like it.

As our dog chewed up the digital camera, no photo, but it's got green and black (possibly dark navy blue) glazing unlike most of the ones I've seen with just green glazing. OMC sticker intact but it does look like someone once put a thunbnail under it.

Yahoo!
I just hit the local Goodwill at lunch and found a vintage carved wood perfume bottle. It's a groovy seahorse shape and the glass bottle is still intact with the "John A. Oya" label. There is even a little bit of the ginger perfume left. At 4.99 it's a definate "Thrift Score" in my book.
Aloha,

Basement, do you have more info on that print, such as origin, history, etc? Are there more out there do you think? Are you selling it?

Pele, BK is the man for finding stuff. He has X-ray eyes, can see through walls and stuff. Nobody, ever, anywhere, not in SoCal or even eBay, will ever find as much stuff, or as cheaply, as BK. He is also immensely talented to boot. It's a hard fact we must all learn to deal with if we are not to become completely depressed.

I believe that is the late artist August Holland's "Pearl Of Wisdom" print. See this site:

Today...An odd OMC "exotic face" mug from the Tonga Room (marked on bottom). $2.50. Coffee bean shaped eyes, large hoop earings (white paint fully intact). She/he/it looks like it might have had a lid originally (though no lip on the rim). If it sounds familiar and you know I'd like to hear. Speaking of lids, in the same shop I found a Kon-Tiki relish/condiment container (as see on the tables in the upper left hand photo on page 102 of The Book). With the lid. $1.50.

I think the August Holland print might be relatively common among TC'ers: I have one, Alnshely have one, Tikifille has one, I think Sabu has one... It is definitely an awesome addition to any bar, and the one BK found appears to be in great shape! Another fine score!

K.C.- They're right...it is an August Holland print. I'm thinking about using the maori in the print to carve a larger tiki. And Emspace, I am actually from another world where gravity is 60 times more powerful...

Believe it or not, that August Holland painting was once available at Sears in the 60's. If I'm correct there's another one that he painted that's similar to that one.

Thanks everybody for the info on the Pearl of Wisdom print. According to the August Holland website it was also available in the S&H Green Stamp catalog. Classic! I'm primed for an August Holland tiki hunt.

Yep, I suspected as much. So that "Clark" name and nerdy persona were just a cover...you're really a much more interesting guy than that!
