It's hideous . If there is no markings on it, it's probably a souvenir mug. That is my guess.

This week's haul:


10" Maori tiki


Tagged CocoJoes poi pounding Menehune and a tagged Schirman:

I have a Polyart version of the Schirman piece, but never had the SchirmanSchirman version of it.

Trader Vic's S+P:


Trader Vic's Ashtray:


Framed piece of tapa from Fiji.

Frame sucks, but it's original to the piece. It has the store tag on it still

Albert's Tiki Village, Sacramento matchbook:



Craigslist find:
I saw an ad for a tiki/desk table a few weeks ago on local craigslist. From my early days on TC, I recognized the table as being carved by Tiki Diablo. They were asking way out of my budget for it, so I didn't call on it at that time. The ad disappeared after a week, and I wondered if anyone saw it and ever picked it up. On Friday morning, the ad reappeared with a much lower price that I could happily afford. So I grabbed it:

32 inches high, 3' wide by 5' long. They bought it 3-4 years ago at a consignment/antiques store in Orange County for $950. I kinda felt bad paying them only what I did for it, but they REALLY needed to get rid of to free up some space and were willing to part with for next to nothing. They tried to do research on it before they sold it, but came up blank because it was signed "Danny 'Chiki'." I told them all about my nice new table and the artist who carved it- AFTER I paid, loaded, and strapped the thing down in the back of my truck!

Searching tiki daily, I've averaged only one tiki purchase every three years on craigslist...
Buzzy Out!

Dude! Just ask the guy. Explain your hobby to him & show him some pics of your stuff. Sure doesn't look like he's got much of an attachment to the stuff, if it's just hanging in the garage.



Fear not, I'm assessing the situation, planting seeds, all that jazz. Our 9 year olds are best friends so, I'll see him again.
That being said, the feeling I got when he talked about it was: he knows it's cool, plus it reminds him of his dad, but he doesn't know quite what to do with it, i.e.; not quite ready to give them up yet.

It was our conversation about it that made him get out the bamboo cup with the swizzles.

Actually I could see him latching on to the hobby himself possibly, he's already on the periphery with his whole house done in nautical style and the stuff he and his wife bring back from Hawaii every year.

Fair enough, maybe I'll use it as a grenadine decanter until something better comes along. Glad I only paid $80.00 for it then...Just kidding!

Eric, Dunno how I missed this post. Anything on the provenance on this dude? Fernwood tikis aren’t just falling from the sky. Very nice find.

Hey Tabutiki666 when I was on Oahu I picked up a few mugs including the one on the left marked "F&S Made in Hawaii" and the one in the middle marked "The Pottery Hawaii"



Yours looks like it came from the same mold just that interesting glaze/paint job.

So its either from one of those companies---I am guessing The Pottery Hawaii since the size is pretty much the same as the one I found in brown.

Hope that helps!

I scored it at a "private" estate sale as opposed to a professional estate sale. "Private" usually means "I can run this thing myself."

I got it cheap. I bought from the son who's mom and dad brought it back from Hawaii 50 years ago.
Skal, ETR.
