It's a cup.....from Hawaii

Looks like homemade tourist swag & the term "Suck em Up"
was made popular by Don Ho from his 1969 song of the same name
so you can date it from, say 1970 to today as how old it is
but it does look newish.

Does this tiki look familiar to anyone? I feel like I've seen one just like this before, but couldn't quite find a match in any of the books. He's about 5.5 feet tall, looks to be older and made of palm.

Here's an interesting lamp I've not run across before, pulled from photos for an upcoming sale in Wisconsin:

Picked this up today in Fredrick Md. We get a LOT of African stuff in this part of the east coast, but this doesnt look African to me- in particular the nose has sort of a Moa quality to it. So is it Polynesian of some sort?

I would saw its a hobbyist attempt at chainsaw art by the way the cuts are done. Kinda trying to look like Witco I think. I would hang it on the wall in my bar.

Thanks Trav! It is definitely going on the wall!
It does look like chainsaw art most of the cuts are a suspiciously familiar width. The wood looks like it might be western fir. It is a pine of some sort but not the sappy southern variety.

The blue cast comes from my phone somehow, it is stained dark brown.
Now if somebody could tell me how to delete the second copy of the first post I idiotically managed to put up there? (please- dont bother, I need to learn by doing- just wanted you all to know I already realized I screed that up somehow!)

Help!!!! I just picked up a GIANT fiberglass Tiki that resembles an old Coco Joe. The eyes light up red. It stands about six feet tall. Looking for any one who may know the history of this big boy?

I think it was from Sea & Jungle Imports. They did the fiberglass ones, and we have on of the wall lamp versions. I think yours in the catalog page below. A bit under and to the right of the exclamation point of "TIKIS!" Not 100% sure though.

Nope. Those are just a few years old. Maybe 2003 or 2004. The company use to be under "bigstatues.com" or something like that. I cant find it now. they do all the common pirates you see too.

And the carving looks like the KC war god.


Buzzy Out!
