What a haul! Frame 1 and 2 are all Orchids made lamps, and the rattan basket lamps in frame 3 and 4 are from O.A., I believe, (except the hexagonal one, that's Orchids too). Frame 5... I dunno...

wow wow wow! those lamps are fantastic!
I've been wondering what to do with my wicker float shaped lamps, now you've given me the idea to put a float inside them!

Great haul, I hope they live a long lit life.

Tikiskip, thanks for posting those! I like info almost as much as stuff. It might interest you to know that Kon Tiki in Tucson, and Omni-Hut in Smyrna have the dodecahedron (twelve pentagonal sides) lamp. Omni Hut's is like yours, with the five-pointed starfish inclusions, and Kon Tiki's has resin panels with fish graphics. I have the same one, but with crown of thorns starfish inclusions.
I've got an old Oceanic Arts catalog I'll post when I get some more web storage space; I think it covers the OA ones you've got.

Hey tikijackalope, I would love to see your OA catalog! I agree with you, on the history of the stuff. It makes it alot more fun when you know the origin of all these tiki items. The old stuff has a patina that you just can't fake. It's that hanging in a bar for 40 + years, with the smoke, grime, and that occasional drink that gets thrown in someones face look. Even though they all smell like peanut oil, I think they have good mojo. Also the kahiki still! has the lights you called, dodecahedron. But they are larger than the one I show, And in fairly good shape.

No, I've had one for years. I want you to make, or Show me how to make copies! I think it is the coolest table lamp out there. I would like to have more. Plus some people have been asking me about them. we could sell them as copies. You can make the mold out of the one I got. If you are worried about the copy right thing, we could cut off one of the ears on ours, and call it the kahiki double headded monkey lamp ah la Davinci. Ok who's in?

In closing I would like to say I had to almost beg people to go to this sale.
Even jumped through hoops to try and help some get Kahiki items that they wanted.
In return I got no thanks and some (the ones I helped the most)talk about me like a dog to this day.
Helped sell the velvets for bruce he made money not I.( Don't say you don't know where this is comming fom)
THIS is why I don't "help" people and spread the word when I know of these sales.

Hey, Tikiskip, if there were still lightbulbs in the various lamps, what wattage were they? I've always wondered how bright a conventional lightbulb I can use in mine w/o risking warpage of the fiberglass inner cylanders that many of them use.
