Wish I could read Spanish. I bought this book in 1993 because there were no illustrated books on Covarrubias' work out in English at that point:




Last copy of this book... It is really nice with a lot of images, practically impossible to find now, out of print. If anyone is interested in buying or trading, contact me.



Make your best offer!




Avilable for TC'ers first!
Tomorrow Ebay!

Zeta: Such high starting bids are a turn-off for e-bay bidders in general, always were. Much more so in the current American economy. And since this is still the main market for Tiki, Spanish and otherwise, you gotta be realistic about the way it works here.

Tiki is not realistic. Collecting international vintage tiki mugs is not realistic. I am not selling to the realistic "Joe the bidder". SERIOUS COLLECTORS ONLY.

If anyone has any vintage mugs from Mexico or Spain that I don't have already, I will happily pay the same prices I am asking for. I would trade too.

I will not lower the prices. Ever. These are unique mugs that took me years to find in the wilderness of Spain and Mexico. Worth every penny. Awesome antiques are not cheap.

It surprises me that a pop historian like yourself fail to see the importance of these historic pieces... If ultra rare vintage international tiki mugs are not worth a couple hundred dollars, collecting tiki sucks.

No one has them. The mug manufacturer is a complete mystery for everyone. (except me ) Key pieces of the worldwide tiki puzzle. This are the originals, not copies like the ones you sold (at high prices) a few years ago with your Kon-Id brand. (back in the day, how much you sold the Maori face replica for?)

Sorry, no bargains here, they are not that expensive either. I repeat, I would pay the same prices if someone was selling something similar. But nobody is. Supply and demand. I'm the sole provider. I set the prices.

We will see...

Let the buyers decide.

Zeta, the above was in no way suggesting that your pieces are not WORTH these prices. I was merely trying to inform you of the market forces on American e-bay and suggest a possible reason why there are no bids on them yet.

I am happy for you that you do not have to sell them for less and do not have to care if they sell or not. I miss-interpreted your "BUY MY STUFF- NOW!" post as being desperate (which I am glad you are not!), or being baffled why no one was bidding. I wanted to explain, and give advice. Some folks here are selling their precious cargo because they have to make next month's rent. That's why I sell if I sell any of my stuff, and I so am happy with whatever cash I get when I need it.

So I wish you well with getting your price, it IS indeed absolutely possible that some well-moneyed collector will happily pay that. Because folks, everything Zeta is saying about the rarity and scarceness of the pieces is true, these are not your average Tiki ceramics.
