A few Tiki finds from the past few weeks. We made a trip to Trader Vic's in Atlanta for the FOM event and we picked up a few pieces there. Hit a few antique stores around the area and found the rest.

Thanks for looking,

Paul

I recently purchase this tiki from a fellow TC'er. It is about 41 inches high and weighs about 80 pounds. The only thing I know about it is that it may be made of mahogany and came from the Hale Tiki Bar several years ago. Does anyone out there know the name of the carver, or where or when it was carved? Thanks

Not much to find around here. Got this travel brochure from the 70's for .10.

A quick stop on the way home today yielded these...


An asiatic wood carved tiki and two Coco Joe's Hapawood tikis.

Plus another thousand or so matchbooks...I will post some pictures over in the matchbook thread.

Later,

PTD

From my recent travels



Coco Joe letter holder from Vancouver

A Calgary friend had a big bag of tiki "crap" that he let me rummage through. I picked these two items:



Monkeypod bowl



Little brass tiki - about 4 inches tall. Looks like a Coco Joe Lono but in brass. Never seen one of these before.



The back says "Aloha Hawaii, No. 16"

From today's early morning blitz...


Otagiri Moai salt and pepper shakers.



Daga Hawaii "The Mad Greek" mug.


Louis B Ceramics Royal Lahaina Resort mug.


Treasure Craft mug.



The Tikis San Gabriel California Moai mug.


Otagiri Kon Tiki mugs.


Stockton Islander Hula Girl mugs.


Outrigger Monterey Moai mugs, never seen the color of the one in the middle before.


Large wood carved Wahine.



Vintage Fijian paddle (thanks Paipo). I think it is the real deal. I had six offers to sell it while I was walking around, one guy asked me four times if I would sell it to him!

Later,

PTD

I suppose I'm the last guy on the block to find this pair:


Now, this set of ashtrays is odd. They appear to be decorated with oak leaves and on the handles are tiki faces much like those found on tiki forks and spoons. They do have the little oval sticker on the bottom that say "Japan". I think they are creepy. Warning: On the next mug swaps I'll be unloading these. (With a nice mug and other stuff too.)

Fijian actually...nice score. I think it is the real deal too, at least from the pics above. Probably worth getting appraised...

PS: Has it got the "typical Fijian flange" on the proximal end?

Paipo,

It does have the flange on the end...paddle was too long to get it in the picture!

Thanks for the link and information my friend.
