Without a doubt, I needs me one of those Tikiccino coffee machines shown in the Book of Tiki. That or an original Shag painting depicting me as a suave supervillain.

But stepping back into the realm of realistic aspirations, I sure wouldn't mind one of those posters showing all of the different celebrities having a good time at the Kahiki.

there's gotta be somebody out there who was involved in ren clark's polynesian village or knew of ren clark- especially since he was such a famous magician- how many of those are there?

Those Polynesian village mugs are quite rare- and im not just talking about the head- there are a few other varieties too- i barely seen any in years of hunting

On the old board someone had posted photos of 6 or 8 Ren Clark mugs. Who was this? Could you post them again? Please?.
Mahalo,
Al

I'm very keen to get hold of a mug from the Mayfair Beachcomber, which used to be based in London. While I've managed to get mugs from the other UK Tiki establishments, I've only managed to get a rather cheesy LP from the Mayfair Beachcomber. The archive film, freely downloadable from Pathe, shows drinks being served in some sort of Tiki mug there, but it would be nice to actually find one.

Barney WAS big, but by now I bet he is sort of crumpled, and would smell bad. I would reconsider....

No but seriously, good taste. Together with Milan Guanko he is my favourite carver, and there must be some of his Tikis around somewhere. Hey, if you found those Pompano Beach Tikis, you'l find one of his... BOT page 246/247

Hula,
Barney West was an old carver who carved tikis for such places as Trader Vic's in Emeryville and the now defunct Lanai restaurant in San Mateo. Aquarj of this board actually acquired the old Barney West carved tiki that stood in front of the Lanai for many years. The tiki now stands in Aquarj's front porch. It's one tall MUTHA! Here is a pic of me with it:

Wow, that's a beaut! What's the story behind the aquisition? Is it outdoors in all weather? Has it been treated?

Is there a story behind that particular style of Tiki? I've a little 10 inch version with Hawaii on the bottom, but the combination of his sad eyes and angry mouth throws me.

Pol. Pop, a little correction here: The Tiki stood in front of LANAI LIQUORS, which to my knowledge was unaffiliated with the Restaurant. The Liquor store probably took the name from there since it is in the same neighbourhood.

See the Tiki being moved at aquarj's website:
http://www.goofspot.com/bamboo/see/sfrm.htm

Barney drank himself to death decades ago, but you can see his fine Tikis at Trader Vic's all over the world. The big ones in Emeryville, the one's at the Atlanta T.V.'s old entrance (now the rear), and most of those medium size Tikis that sit on the booths in Trader Vics are Barney Wests. He also did great masks for them.
My holy grail would be one of his Tiki chairs he made (BOT p.246). He also did figureheads and totem poles.

Hmmm... I always thought that tiki stood in front of The Lanai first and then Lanai Liquor second - after The Lanai closed down.
