I heard from Trader Jim, who was told it by Vince Ray, that Vince Rays Uncle designed it and the menus.

Latest Tiki in film from the just released THE DESCENDANTS on DVD & Blu-Ray. They were not that easy to spot but here's three"

Tiki mask on wall in the Tahiti Nui restaurant set in Hanalei, Kauai (a real place) More masks in other angles in the restaurant but I'll show this one


Tiki on the right in Clooney home den


Small mug like Tiki in background behind to the left in his office. Need help on this one because it looks like it comes with a grinder/pounder like implement in the head. Anyone seen this before?

CN, I think what we are looking at is the bamboo-colored version of this Okolehao bottle:

Nice one Bigbro. I was hoping to get an answer on this thread but not this fast. I'm a tikiphile that doesn't drink so I'm ignorant of the drinking side of this culture which I know is an important part of Tiki. So I'm not familiar with this bottle, is it rare? Cause I'm trying to track it down with my set dressing pals.

I think that one is kind of rare, while you can still get most of the full sized Okolehao bottles for around 50.- bucks, here's my collection:



I found most of these in liquor stores on back shelves - but that was in the 90s. Most of them are made by Hawaiian Distillers:



The one in the Descendants is not even an Okolehao bottle per se: My version (above) has no type on it, and there is a blue one that says "Vodka" on it in Phil Roberts' "Waikiki Tiki". So I think it was made as a decanter and sold empty. Mine is signed thus:



Waikiki Tiki has a couple of other ceramic Tiki pieces by Kay Good in it.

Pretty rare as they go.

I think I would agree with that assessment... it's probably a Kay Good. It looks much smaller (in the shot) than the vodka decanter. She apparently did work in Hawaii while/after Adele Davis sold many of her molds to the Daga boys. Same basic period Mid-late 1960's and Early 70's. None of the ceramics professors or kiln operators (from the day) seem to know too much about her. (And no one can as yet tell me anything more about Lokena...)

The Vodka decanter was presumed part of a set with other colored bottles by 'Adele Davis.' I've seen a yellow tall decanter like your green one, Sven.
