I have never seen The bar top of the piano bar.
Do you have a picture?
I do not know who did them.
Will try to find out.
You are right, the desks are way cool.
I wish Greg would post a picture of Lee Henrys desk.

I just met the Kahikis first bartender Bob Kost.
Will try to get more story from him.

That is a super rarity, never seen one in person. Was that made in the basement?

Same material as the ashtrays, glazed. Also, check out the original front door handle.

Wendy that is not the one you showed me is it?
Yours had more of a glazed face than that one.
That face looks like day glo paint.

I just got a pineapple sleeve as well from the first Kahiki
bartender.
Will post pic later.
Oh, and a bar and four MINT chairs.

Here we have Tom Iaquinta left and Hermon Leitwein.
Tom worked for Mr Leitwein, And later became
Building and maintenance superintendent.
One of Toms duties was to light the two 15 foot moai
in front of the Kahiki.
BY HAND!!
He would use a soup can on a pole to light the gas torches.
Tom also helped make the ashtrays and other ceramic mold
type things.
He said those ceramic things were made of a material called
pour rock.
Mr Leitwein Also said that the first table lamps had sented
oil lamps and were not electric.
Mr Leitwein turned 84 on the 22 of September 2007.



Ok I knew there was somthing about that sleeve on this thread.
The POUR ROCK part.
Can you see if yours is plaster or a grey ( pour rock) material?
The lamp I have are made of Pour Rock.

Yes, pour rock. The bottom really gives it away when the felt is partially pulled back. Here are a few more pictures. It has this amazing buttery smoothness and patina all over, especially at the rim and inside.







You're right, my flash makes that green look odd.

A real rarity because it is not marked Kahiki. Glad to know it exists!

I've had this awhile... I didn't see another posted to this "catalog".





(Oh, and I know of another of these at a shop if someone's interested... priced at $100 Yikes!)

Picked this card up today and thought I'd post it here. I don't seem to remember seeing this one posted on TC before but I could well be wrong. It's a big one 6" by 8". Hand dated 1966 0n the back. I have a couple of questions. Who carved the large idols out front (not the Moai) and what became of them and what was the small building in the left foreground used for. Thanks.

close-up of Tikis.

Smaller building.

t I would like to be able to search trader vic the catalog and see every item they had. Or kon tiki, And so on. Lots of photos. Then if you get an item, you would have a reference guide. Much like BOT or Tiki quest. Just the on line version. So who wants to start trader vic's?

Trav, when I went on my photo safari with Jeff Berry in January of 1996, there was only one of the Moai left. I assume they were carved by Jack Hite, they guy that carved that built-into-the-desk Tiki you see in the BOT. Don't know what happened to them. The lil Japanese Teahouse, as far as I recall, was just a utility building, lit up as a roadside sign at night.

Thanks for the history Sven. Wish I could have been on that tour in 1996.

It was 2 1/2 days of Tiki heaven. We could freely explore and roam and pic angles for my photos, Jeff would help me set up lights, and we would shoot. After a couple of hours when we got tired we would pick a booth to rest and they would lavish food and drink on us. Then on with the show. We spent half a day alone in the upstairs offices going thru their files and drawers for photos and ephemera for the BOT. Then we went on to Chicago, to the Kona Kai and Hala Kahiki.
