This manly 1975 HIP pen holder is a nice sculpt:

Another CCJ pipeholder



Also a nice concept, with good detail, is this Tiki village letter holder (with no company ID markings):



Aloha, Freddie

Nice. Freddie, Mahalo for the companion pieces. Da Wahine is naaaice! Judging by what I have seen over these years, wouldn't you say that HIP was a little more liberal than CCJ with the nudity of their Wahines?

As a thank you, here are two pages from an early 70s CCJ catalog (!):

A lot more liberal, CCJ was even polnipplely correct for the guys

I love this thread...there's something about this stuff that makes me want more...and more! I gotta sell some more carvings to get more lava!
Anyone got this creepy looking fella that was pictured in the other thread about the factory (maybe a good idea to merge it into this one?)....I'm looking at you Freddie! The PNG inspired "gator mask" is pretty sweet too.

That's really cool, thanks for sharing the comparison with the artifact it's based on, it makes it ten times more interesting. It's a pretty faithful rendition.

Here's one for the CCJSI files:

Found this HIP:


But when I picked it up, I thought it was a cocojoes. I didn't even read the tag or look at the bottom, I was happy just to get it.
The reason I thought it was a CCJ was because it had this tag on the back:

I threw it up on the shelf and forgot about it. I moved it and looked at the bottom for the first time, and saw it was a hip. I quickly thought back to the early posts about the double marked ones.
looking at the tag closer, I noticed the CCJ's tag was originally longer than the HIP piece it was now on. Someone cut the bottom of the tag off with scissors, and quite raggedly at that. It is also glued on with a different glue and you can see around the top edge where it was originally placed askew and then corrected, without wiping up the glue.

Having never read the tag(oops! Guess I was busy back then) it never registered that this statue wasn't kanaloa. The stock # is close to this Cocojoes Kanaloa


but the wording on the tag is different from the one on the hybrid


What the ???????????????????????

Alright detectives, I just got off the phone with the mayor, and he wants a full report on my desk tomorrow morning. From now on , this is your only case. Now get to work, and be careful out there...

Hey Freddie, Thanks for checking! The mayor just promoted you to lead detective...

Here are the Kanaloas that I've come across:





Also, I picked up this pendant a couple weeks back:



I was wondering what the dates signify(Astrological signs-I'm Guessing)

I saw another on ebay a while back:

The back had a different dates on it.
They look like Aries and....?(not up on astrology)

Was there a whole 12 month set of these?

Any bit of info is twice as much as I already know...

Have a great day out there,

Buzzy

Welehu (the archer) is Sagittarius, and those are the proper dates. Mahoe Hope (the scales) is Libra, the dates on the back were probably Sept 23 - Oct 22.

More info about Hawaiian Zodiac symbols can be found

Hey everybody, first I wanted to say thanks for posting some cool pix on this thread and the other recent one. I've been too busy lately to take an active part in TC, but as a CJs fan I was digging these threads.

BPBuzzy - those pendants are indeed part of a full astrological set. I have 11 out of 12, that I was gonna post pics of some day. As I recall, only two have tikis, including one of the ones you posted. The other one is Leo / "Hilinaehu".

-Randy
