Wow! I'm not a Treasure Craft collector so I had no idea it was that rare... I guess it was $4.00 well spent!

Well, here's a good chunk of my Treasure Craft collection. Alot of my Treasure Craft stuff I got rid of but I did hold onto a few pieces.



These are the Hula Dancers that have the white colored porcelain on them. They look great with age as they get all those crazing lines. The two on the right are a couple of young Hula Dancers. In the center are the Menehunes in a couple of the poses that you can find them in. Two still have the original paper cards.



This photo is of some of the many different Salt and Pepper sets you can find. My favorite is definitely the Tikis in the center. Their style of Tiki is just awesome!



This picture has a couple different pieces starting with the great Tiki face ash tray on the right, two mugs with the different Hawaiian Island names on them (probably part of a whole set), a set of three different bottle top pieces in their original stand, and a small vase (2.5" tall)that has a pineapple on the front.



Here are a bunch of pineapple bowls/dishes/ash trays in different sizes. A big fish shaped dish, two small beach bum feet and cool shaped "Hawaii 50th State" dish. You sure get a pretty good idea of some of the bright and different colors they used. The majority of these pieces are dated in the 1960's.

Well, that's a quick look at some. Hope I have inspired a few people to not just turn away from those still inexpensive and easy to find pieces. They make a great display of Hawaiiana for your Tiki rooms!! Dan

Sorry I got in on this topic a little late... I don't know how I forgot about my one and only Treasure Craft item, I'm kind of surprised no one else has posted a pic of this one...

Is that the same piece? The faux wood grain looks different. John, does your's have a flat back and a hole for hanging?

Since this is the only Treasure Craft specific post I could find, I'll ask my question here.

I often find TC items with the "brown" faded or leached off of the bisque areas. Has anyone had any success "re-browning" a TC item? Seems like a wood stain might do the job. Any advice?

Did Treasure Craft ever have figures with a black glaze with the withe crackle highlight areas? I have seen a couple of these figures unmarked and have passed them by. Should I pick them up in the future? They had a Hawaiian theme. Thanks.

We have been collecting Treasure Craft for years now and it never ceases to amaze us how diverse a product line they had.
We were at an estate sale last week, the guy there handed me a box said fill it with stuff and I’ll give you a price, I wandered around there for half an hour and it wasn’t until we got home and I realized I had been carrying the prize, reminding me of this thread.





To say we have a lot of Treasure Craft is an understatement; I wish I could locate and shoot it all, but one of my favorite pieces is what we call the “Shrimp Galleon”. You fill the large ship with shrimp cargo and the small boats labeled “shrimp boat” hold your catch and they have an extra removable (read washable) compartment for the cocktail sauce. The Galleon isn’t marked but the boats are, Treasure Craft 1957 scratched into the bisque.








My very best Alohas,

Bosko

Are these by Treasure Craft? I think they look like it to me but they are not marked. 3" tall and are solid not hollow. I put a quarter in the pic to show how small they are.
