Merry belated Christmas, TC. I present the 1972 Oceanic Arts Polynesian Lighting Catalog. My thanks to Bob at OA for the souvenir of a fun visit and the permission to post it.
I hope some of you follow up with other OA catalogs or pictures of lamps that match the catalog; some of the recent purchases from the Kahiki are probably in here.
The inside back cover list, "Oceanic Arts decor and lights have been used in...", evokes a certain longing in those of us for whom it is largely a roll call of places we never saw.
OA tells me they may have used this catalog for several years and still offer lamps seen in it. Sorry about the huge jpegs, but the small print had to be legible.

I got this one! For $10 bucks. It's missing its lid though. Currently being used as a table.

I also got this one from the same place as the other one. Have no idea where either came from.

I will try and show the lights I think are oceanic arts. If anyone has more information on these lights let me know. Purchased at kahiki outlet store 11-5-05.



This lamp is 12 inches tall by 14 inches wide. The top is plywood. It has Lt brown paper inside.

Ok these are not the best photos, But they do show a pair of the above light in the kahiki. These lights do not have the paper in them like the above light. I took the photo from a video I made of the last night of the kahiki party.


Will post more later.

Tikiskip, thanks for posting the video captures. You know, considering what a celebrated place the Kahiki was, there are remarkably few pics of it online or in books.
I always hope somebody posts pics of places, living or defunct, that are more or less like an insurance inventory or the pics a model maker would need to re-create a place: lots of detail of lamps, wall hangings, tikis and other carvings, along with general shots of rooms, showing their relationship to each other...sort of a pan-tiki documentary project, I suppose.

I have always wondered...

getting the pufferfish into the glass float is one thing, but after you got it home, how did one change the bulb???

That's exactly why I took the video. Many months before the kahiki closed I took lots of video, And I took allot of the last night party. It's great to have now, because I can go through and see some of the stuff I purchased. Thank you for posting the catalog. Really great reference!

Thank you for sharing. I have a three year old catalog from OA and many of these lamps are not listed.
