I like collecting Treasure Craft items because they are vintage, go well with other tiki-related stuff, and the prices are still very reasonable in this area.

Although Treasure Craft made a lot of souvenir type items for National Parks and amusement parks, I am just going to show pictures of the ones in my collection that are tiki, Hawaiian, or ocean-related.


Tiki ashtray


Tiki salt & pepper shakers from Hawaii and Florida


Sea Horse s&p from Marineland, whale s&p from Sea World


Pineapple s&p's


Fish s&p's


Coconut tree s&p


Treasure chest cookie jar


Menehune figures


Figurines about 8 inches tall


Figurines about 11 inches tall


Coconut mugs


Many items have the year and the place it was manufactured. Most of my collection is dated between 1957 and 1969.

If you are interested in the history of Treasure Craft, there is a lot of info on the internet.
Here is one website to start with.

Aloha,

Not that it really matters but I am curious why this is in Beyond Tiki! I think it should be in the Collecting Tiki Forum.
I know, I know Treasure Craft made plenty of non tiki items.
But personally when I think of Treasure Craft my brain goes to tiki.
After all one of the Treasure Craft manufacturing plants was on Maui. I loves the Treasure Craft!
Super collection ookoo lady!
Thanks for sharing

Here's one of my treasure craft peices. My guy has a couple of little white dot splats on him, but I love him just the same. There are plenty of great tiki and tiki-ish items to collect from treasaure craft.

Dawntiki,
I originally put this thread in "Beyond" because Treasure Craft isn't exclusively Tiki, and I planned to add pictures of my other Treasure Craft stuff that has other subjects.

Thanks for posting your picture. You have the piece I've been looking for! Every time it comes up on e-bay I've been outbid. I'm also looking for the Sailing Ship salt & pepper set.

Some treasure craft shtuff:



i really liked this one - $28 i think






this was about $18.




my wahine found this for me for about 20 cents (handful of pennies to random seller)



treasure craft 1961 ~ toothpick holder?

the head is broken off and glued back on, so that makes it worth 10 cents - ?


treasure craft ashtray

I love Treasure Craft stuff!

I find quite a bit of it up here. It had been taking over my collection space so I boxed it all up until I have the chance to re-do the living room and put up a perimeter shelf just for the mugs.

As soon as I have the time I'll photograph what hasn't already been posted.

I've always thought these little S&Ps had a certian Treasure-Crafty quality, but aside from a little "Japan" sticker on one of the "mugs," they are unmarked. Anybody know for sure?

More evidence of the symbiotic relationship between tiki central and owl central:

I've got to agree that Treasure Craft made some really cool looking stuff. I only have the beautiful Sperm Whale Salt and pepper shakers though.

Thanks for sharing your pic's everybody!!!
Later,
Spermy

these are not treasure craft. the bottom ones are made by quon-quon. the top ones i'm not sure but treasure craft is always marked and always fully glazed.
