Not really tiki, but does anybody know anything about the two mugs from the Timberwolf Lounge at Harvey's Lake Tahoe?






Tiki Pug,

According to a "Old Timey Lake Tahoe" co-worker of mine Harvey's Inn was also owned by Harvey Gross like Harvey's Wagon Wheel Hotel and Casino. It's now the
Lakeside Inn.

Are those OMC mugs?

Trad'r Bill,

Nice find on the tikis, they look to be in amazing condition. Nice to get a trio like that as well.

I especially like your velvet painting, I seem to remember having a postcard around similar to the artwork in the painting.

Could you take a couple of shots (full on and one with the signature) and post it over in the velvet thread?

Question, was the estate sale in Tiburon?

Thanks,

PTD

Hey PTD -

Thanks for the props... - sure, I'll take some more pictures of my velvet and update the other thread... you're right about that estate sale being in Tiburon. I *knew* you saw that I half expected to see you there Being in Marin County, I was really hoping I'd find some Barney West Tikis, but I'm definitely not complaining.

-Trad'r Bill

Picked up this at a local shop. It's about 18" tall and from the seventies and it's a chalkware piece.. Still nice!

Trad'r Bill,

Saw the ad and wondered the same thing, could not get away from Sacramento on Thursday, so I am glad to see you were able to get them. I had visions of Barney West tikis being discovered, but the fern ones are pretty cool too!

Today's finds...


Another WWII Papua New Guinea female carved figure.




Larger carved wooden figure, not sure of the specific orgin?







Larger carved wooden outrigger canoe, 4' long. Smaller outrigger model to show size. Was hanging from a ceiling at an estate sale, as told to me from the gentleman I purchased it from.

Later,

PTD

Is this the strangest version of Tangaroa seen on TC?

It's based on this one, collected by missionaries in Rarotonga:


from the British Museum.

They have a plaster copy made from the original at the museum on Rarotonga, which the local artists use as a reference model for tourist pieces:



This god is known/named as Rongo on the island.

Paipo, thanks for all the info.. For a minute when I picked it up I was thinking they were the 3 cannibals.. Until I noticed they were all the same and then I thought nope, but they were cannibals!.. Thanks!

Went to Rennagers in Orlando this past Saturday and found a treasure trove of Tiki! I think we found around twenty mugs and many Coco Joes. I plan on posting a group shot of all the tikis.

As I approached one vendor I noticed this mug right away. I asked how much is your funny clown mug, my aunt collects clown items. The vendor looked at me and said " you mean my Stephen Crane Kon Tiki Mug"?



I said okay, how much? After a little bargaining I got it for $60 and it's dead mint! I found a few very large Coco Joes and some other rare mugs as well.



I think this is the rarest mug I've found in the wild and one we're pretty happy with even at $60. I know I could double my money on ebay, but this one is a keeper!

Paul

Great finds!!! Here's a few things from the last couple months.

A) Kahala Hilton swizzles, matchbooks, and little scooper from the Maile Room


B) Don the Beachcomber keychain...does anybody know when/where this is from? I haven't been able to find any info.


C) Thrift shop find...I have no idea what this is, please help... I was attracted to the tapa cloth clothing and what appears to be palm husk on the inside of the tapa cloth, to give the doll some structure.




Thanks for looking and any info is greatly appreciated!!!
