Good find - never seen this before! The glaze looks so modern, almost like MunkTiki. But since the kiln has been around since 1954, it should be vintage. You should contact them, maybe you'll find out the name and year: http://quylekilns.com






better yet, maybe they have a bunch of deadstock mugs layin around in storage... if they made one tiki mug they probably made other designs back in the day......



You're right about the glaze. It is what initially interested me.
I have contacted the company, and I'll post a reply when I hear back.

Good score on the hula lamp.

Funny thing is ...my vintage working hula girl lamp was free and my 6 strand rattan couch, 2 chairs, coffee table and end table were a total of $275. Crazy California---its like tiki just grows on trees around here..it really is a hard existance.


Let's see...
Finding tiki stuff for next to nothing everywhere I go AND living within driving distance of no less than 10 tiki establishments == EPIC LIVING!

Here's an old Tapa Cloth from Tonga I got a month ago.

I've never liked a tapa pattern as much as this one, I was very happy to get it. It has fold lines, but it's extremely thick and heavy.










I also got a slit drum cheap, though I doubt it's PNG origin.

Is the settee comfortable? I found one for $100 and newly reupholstered, but I don't want it if it's not comfortable since it would be my only sofa.

It's extremely comfy: that was one of my concerns too. It's also amazingly well-built. All the springs are intact, and those are the original cushions. I'm sure a lot of the surviving ones aren't as pampered as this set was, but they were built to last back then.

Semi-Tiki find. It fits in with the stuff I collect very well. But in all honesty, I don't mind if anyone touches my stereo.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT "NOT THE WAREHOUSE RESTAURANT IN MARINA DEL REY"
BUT IT SAYS SO ON THE BACK
NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE AND SIGNED BY THE "HARPIST"
AT LEAST SONG 3 ON THE BACK IS: THE HAWAIIAN WEDDING SONG
WILL SIT NEXT TO THE MUG








2 BOOKS

My wife and I went on a "spur of the moment" trip up to the Hong Kong Inn Tue's nite. Snagged this stuff while in Ventura
Tiki is apprx.3 1/2' tall. I'm not crazy about the blk paint on the tiki and that will be changed. Float is a 12 incher,made by the mold method as opposed to blown and has salt deposits on the glass and rope. May be of Korean origin. Float was purchased at an antique store on main street. Another ice crusher in a color I don't have.
The bowl is sold at the HKI but I was very happy to get both Tommy and Jimmy Kwan to "autograph " it. I bought 4 of their dbl old fashioned and two highball glasses for posterity even though they don't have any HKI markings on them.


also picked up some "tiki bar" matchbooks at a thrift on main,and lotsa paper memento's from the HKI which I'll post at a later date
Cheers

Lori Don't believe him-this is why he's called White Devil. That settee is so uncomfortable it will ruin your life! Fortunately,I know of a place in La Mirada where you can dump it. I know the dude that runs it. I might even pick it up for him cuz I owe him.
Cheers , congrats on a nice purchase.

Here is something that some of you may be interested in seeing.This is a real shrunken head that i have acquired after years of looking.This is not a war tsanta,but it is a real head from South America that was made for the tourist trade pre 1950's.The ears are a dead giveaway between the real thing and a shrunken head made from molded animal skin.
