More lava eye candy I picked up since the last megapost of my collection:

Larger HIP stuff


Polyart, Lava ray, and Hohokee(sp?)


Schirman


Coco Joe's


Hapawood hula ashtray is a HIP, the rest cocojoe


HIP penholder and Cocojoes


Coco Joe's jewel fish donated by Ookoolady:


CocoJoe's, upper right Polyart



Surprisingly, I still have room for more. A lot more!


Extra thanks to all of you who have been pointing me in the right direction when you see something out there that I don't have!

Buzzy Out!

Hey Buzzy, just saw your post with your cabinets and all your detailed shots of your extensive collection. WOW.....great job!! What an awesome collection! Quite a few very rare pieces in there.
Funny though when you think you've almost got them all and then you find something or see something in someone else's collection that you haven't got yet.
I guess posting pictures of almost everything you have is a good way to see how much other people here on TC have that you might not have yet and really be able to fine tune your collection.

Will anyone actually get them all??? Probably not but it sure is a great hunt!!!
Thanks again Buzzy for your great posts!!


Okay, here's two Lava pieces I got over a few days off over Christmas:



Coco Joe Hawaii Pen Holder (minus the pen - easier to display)

Here's a harder to find Poly Art Tiki about 8" tall:



Mahalo, TabooDan

Need some help with an ID for this Lono. 12 1/2" tall and heavy resin. My mom picked it up at a local thrift shop. I gave him a bath in the sink as he had years of dust and grime caked on. I can't find a makers mark anywhere. By the dust, heft and detail I'm thinking it is a vintage piece but am not sure. Coco Joe, HIP, Polyart? Any help would be great. Thanks.

That guy there is a HIP. It's in Duke's book on page 178 with a tag, but the tag has the same description as a more common KU piece. There are a different sizes of it too.

I picked up this new "Coco Joe" on e-Bay for a buck, is it valuable?

It was 750% more valuable about 5 days later when this one sold:

VTG-TIKI-FOR-LONG-LIFE-CARVED-WOOD-COCO-JOES-HAWAII

Ended: Feb 19, 201013:46:57 PST
Bid history: 4 bids

You bought yours just in time....

If it goes up in value any more, I'm going to try to trade mine for the $5000 penis/coral rock!

I think he secretly makes them behind the house to baffle the other collectors.
Some cool designs, love the "Hope" pendant.
