Thanks !! the bar is a built in- not free standing- the stools were for sale- $100 for all four and in great shape. today they would be half price- $50 for the set. Unless of course they are already sold.

There was a lot of crap I passed on this week, but these two definitely made the final cut:


Ooga Mooga calls it the Club wielding tiki mug, same design as the Luau Club Wielding Tiki from florida:


Neat thing about it is the inscription: Students for Kennedy San Diego 68

It was for Robert Kennedy's presidential run. Couldn't find anything about the San Diego branch of this student org, but found a little on the San Francisco one in 68. Neat political crossover piece.

Second item was this large plaster tiki:


It had the original Seaworld price tag on it and the mark Dotieba 874

In the moment, out there in the field, I'd remembered that Randotti was a combo of the Husband and wife's names, so the Dotie prefix part and the three numbers made me inclined to think it was a Randotti piece. The Seaworld tag was another indication, because I heard they sold stuff there as well. I took a chance and grabbed it without being totally sure of what it was, just because of the Seaworld provenence( And, for what it could be, the price was more than reasonable.) I came home and checked on trusty TC,and sure enough, it was a Randotti piece. And, apparently, it was designed by bamboo Ben's grandma...
My hunting sidebar story for this one: Old lava looking tiki, Seaworld, Randotti with the yet to be discovered hedley connection-was all swimming through my mind as the seller was getting me my change. Another shopper there looked at me and started laughing. He asked me why I bought it, and I told him I thought it was neat. He then asked if it came from Hawaii, and I said no, Seaworld(which is in eyesite of where we were). He burst into hysterical laughter again and asked me if I liked Seaworld or something? I told him no again, and said I just liked it. He once again bent over in hysterical laughter at my response. He then told me that the fact that I just walked up, bought it, and didn't argue about the price was the funniest thing he had ever witnessed. Glad I made his swapmeet day that much more fulfilling. Mine sure was!

Buzzy Out!

It's not so unusual when you learn that Bamboo Ben's grandfather is Eli Hedley. They're an artistic bunch of people.

Hey Buzzy
Regarding that Randotti piece-you had me doubled up with laughter after reading your narrative and that fella's reaction to you buying that tiki. All in all, I'd rather be you in that scenario. Nice find-Congrats!
Cheers

Easter Island Kava kava birdman carving and a Maori piece




Well, that Rapa Nui piece is interesting. The figure on top of the kava kava profile is called a "tohunga." (see - plate 52-The Art of Easter Island; Heyerdahl)

Just a couple of small carvings. The one on the left is carved out of bone.

The mask looks similar to an Abelam mask from the East Sepik region of Papua New Guinea.

Here are some recent finds.
Some Fijian weapons. The gugu, 2nd from top, is my favorite. I am not sure what the one that looks like a snail is called. Each is about 30" long.

A couple of bottle stoppers.

Really great full size lamp!

A Mai Kai Shrunken Head mug.

And some records.


Cheers,
ETR
