As our savage renewal project cleen and I decided to bring up the subject of tiki ashtrays for a few reasons. The first being that ashtrays have went the way of the dodo due to the anti smoking mentality of the country (donít take this the wrong way I donít like smoke filled places either and I occasionally smoke!). second we could not find a post dedicated to them. Thirdly we feel ashtrays are the weakest part of our own collection and most likely everyone elseís. That said we encourage everyone to add to this post so we and everyone else can see whatís out there.

Some of these are not tiki or even from restaurants but we enjoy them just the same and hope you do too. We included the matchbooks from the locales if we had them and ask that you do the same. Enjoy!



frankoma T8 not marked from a restaurant.




trader vicís



mark thomasís outrigger



kahiki does anyone know when this was used and who made it?



la concha motel, Vegas



terrace isle small print reads "tropical drinks in a tahitian atmosphere" no city listed on the ashtray. Does anyone have any info on this place?



hawaiian gardens san jose: I have seen a few mugs from this place too



kon tiki hotel phoenix



islander Stockton ca. match books from both major owners



lanai san mateo



bali hai shelter island. Three versions of the matchbook. The goof and cook island version are the same on the reverse.



large colorful ashtray. There is a set of this stuff that includes shakers, coffee type mug, tumbler and plate.



old souvenir ashtray that is a decal under glaze. Very lightweight and brittle.




another souvenir ashtray that you see a lot in thrift stores. Usually they have a name and hawaiian translation of the name. I thought it was cool that I could finally have one but didnít have to look at a name like chuck (not that there is anything wrong with the name chuck) on it!



while this one has nothing to do with tiki or Hawaii I had to put the 25 cents down for it for obvious reasons!

I've got a bunch of ashtrays but most of them are packed away, including all of my Coco Joes. Here's what I could find:


From the Napili Kai Beach Club on Maui, probably made by Treasure Craft:









I think this is an ashtray. Really, I don't know what the heck it is.










Everything else I have is boxed up.

I don't know, this one has no other markings or stickers.

I really like these collection theme threads. I just wish more people would participate. C'mon! Show us you ashtrays!

I have some boxed up and packed away myself. I collect them mostly for their historical aspect (like my postcards and matchbooks). Here are a few that I lost on eBay to other bidders, but kept the auction photos:

Nice! I'd prefer to have the Hawaii version myself, since I can find no evidence of ancient Polynesians ever making it as far as Florida.

Sabu, that Kona Kai ashtray is a sweet one. Too bad you didn't nab it.

This is a Coco Joes canoe-shaped ashtray with tikis at both ends. I've been told that it was originally sold with jars of jelly inside.



.................


Anyone who collects tiki ashtrays should bid on these Trader Vics ashtrays that Tikifish is sellin on e-bay to benefit Purple Jade.
