Just got this great vintage TV lamp by Kron. Looks good sitting on the hi-fi console.

Nice mirrored mid century shelf found today. Get a load of the skull decal in the middle of it, talk about painting a mustache on the Moan Lisa.

jealous!

Love the set of these I have but have wanted a set with a design (not a skull) on the sides like yours. Glad they are still out there!

It was from a yard sale that had been going on all week. Every other day I crawled the car by it but had been disappointed my the mostly tools there and today- bingo. They wanted $10 for it but because of the skull I offered $7 and the woman was glad to sell it. The back says it was made at The Illinois Molding Co Nov 1962.

That could potentially scratch the glass surface. I'm a sign maker, and I say get you an old credit card (or one of those thin ones they send you in the mail to entice you to sign up) and get some Goo Gone. The Goo Gone is citrus based and when poured on to the decal, let it sit so that it draws up the vinyl. Lightly scrape the edges to get it off, should take about an hour or so to do. Wipe clean with Windex and it will be good as new.

I ended up soaking it in Ronsonol lighter fluid for about 10 mins and hit it with the blade from a box cutter and once it was off used more lighter fluid to get the sticker residue and no one was the wiser. The real issue is removing the water stains peppered on the graphics without damaging the art. If I can figure that out I have a few menus I’m hopping to clean up.

Glad its skull free ! I think on the wall covered in knick knacks the water spots wont be as noticeable(?). If you just can't deal with them I have this hole in my wall that could use another one of those shelves.....

Unkle John thanks for that tip too!

I'd like your opinion on some "pins".



I found this one about a year ago. It's metal with a green ceramic head. 3 inches across and 2 inches high. There are no markings on it. It may have been re-purposed. It looked familiar but I haven't been able to find anything like it in the tiki books. (Of course, now someone will post that it's on page 73 of Book of Tiki.)



Excuse the photo, it's hard to get a good image of shiny black glass. These are black glass. The larger is 3 inches and the smaller is 2 inches. They appear to be carved or etched. They were recently given to me by someone who said they were her mothers. So they may be from the 50s or 60s. They may have started life as clips or barrets.

Any ideas on these items?

Oh, and for those of you outside of SoCal I thought I's share a photo of a Matilija poppy.




How can you not enjoy a flower that looks like a fried egg? This is a small one as it's only 6 inches across. It's late in the season but I thought I'd share.

Nancy

Naneki, I would post those nice Pre-Hispanic pop pieces in the "Pop Primitivism" thread. Nice flower!

I seldom make it over here. Questionable as to whether or not this qualifies as "tiki"?





Once there were many, now there are few!

Later,
