i checked out his auction and it does seem that they are marked. he also sez they are clay?..mabey these were for sale as the small ones are a cermaic type material too.

the large one i have is fiberglass and isn't marked so your theory sounds right.

they probably sold them in the tiki/trader hut. how'd you like to go back in time and pick a few of these off the shelf?......

No doubt! You start the financing - and I'll research it....

Actually - looks like these guys beat us to it:

tiki1963, Is that image from an old postcard? Did they sell those tall black Tikis in the picture at Disney? I have one of those and never knew where it came from. I'm going to go look at it right now and check it again for any marks.

hey boutiki...

apparently, they carried them although i don't know if disney produced them. the pic is from a slide dating from the mid-sixties.

about 15-17 years ago i bought some really cool coco joe's style tiki masks from that hut that were made for disney so who knows.

here's a pic of one of the 'mini-me' tiki babies...these were also sold at the hut. i was told that these were all hand painted by a lady that was hired by walt personally. she worked out of her house in anaheim painting tiki god souviners full time! gotta love that disney sponsored slave-labor!




tang...

why not cut out the middle man on that one and time travel with tikibong?

tiki1963, that little guy has haunted us for years. Back in '98 we were driving on route 30 through central Pennsylvania when we stopped in a little antique shop. There was one of those priced at $25. We thought it was too much money and not really THAT cool. We asked it they'd do better on the price, and when they said no, we walked. A year or two later, we were in the area again and decided we wanted that little Tiki after all, but of course he was gone. We regret having let that one go as we've never come across another.

I checked our tall black Tiki, and there are two marks on the bottom, but I can't make anything out. Still a cool piece with nice detail– and it's quite heavy. I like it even more now knowing it made the trip all the way from Disney to the Maxwell Street market in Chicago where we picked him up for five bucks.

oh man! if i had a tiki for every tiki that got away!

what is yours made of? the ones in the pic look like they're from some type of mold as they all have the same crack on the base. the masks i bought were some type of painted chalkware.

btw, i didn't realize i'm speaking with duke carter! man, your book is the best! i love the art direction especially. really shows the whole field of mug collecting as a fine art field. great stuff!

here's some pics of other disney tikis from that hut. the first is of another of the 'mini-me' tikis:



the next is of those masks:



here's another one from the hut! prob 60s....



and Tang, here's the posterior of my tang baby...as you can see, this kids arse is clean!

Yes - a clean arse denotes a true DL prop, and not one for sale in my book.....

Our tall black Tiki is very heavy, but it has fantastic detail so I'd guess it's a dense plaster. It's identical to the ones in your photo, has the "crack" and everything. I'll try to get a picture and post it.

Thanks for the kind words about Tiki Quest. It's nice to hear that the book accomplishes what we wanted it to do.

Your vintage Disney Tiki stuff is all very cool. Those of you who have a bunch of the old Disney stuff should compile photos and post them all on one thread in the collecting forum. I'd love to see all the different Tikis they offered and I'm sure others would as well.

When the Enchanted Tiki Room first opened it actually didn't belong to Disneyland, but was owned by WED Enterprises. Guests to Disneyland even had to pay an extra $0.75 to see the show.

Could these tikis that are stamped "C 1962 WED ENTERPRISES" be souvenirs sold by WED vice Disneyland when the Tiki Room first opened?

Hi TikiPhil -
I was about to contridict you - but a quick check of 'The Nickel Tour' turns out you are correct! WED operated the Monorail too for a time I believe... I wonder when it was that rights reverted to the park itself?
