I started collecting these a long time ago. They go great with tiki! But they are getting harder to find, plus more expensive. Please show yours.
These are from Tikiskips collection.
This one has cool starfish feet!




This is an ahstray.

Hmm, I'm surprised that no one else has contributed to this post. Must be more folks with coconut lamps and shells out there than just the two of us, tikiskip. C'mon people, don't be shy!

Here's a couple of things I just picked up this afternoon:



Abalone shell dish. Perfect for holding mixed nuts and wasabe peas!



Absolutely stunning coral/abalone-shell lamp. Whoever made this didn't glue the coral on the base...it must have been the rock that the coral was attached to when the diver cut it from the reef. The light passes right through the coral and emits a beautiful glow.

Love that frame! The dude in the picture looks like a Polynesian Art Deco Chippendale's dancer...

I saw a small chest of drawers at a local antique store the other day: it was completely covered with glued-on seashells. I'm trying to convince my 12-year old daughter that she wants it for her room, but she ain't goin' for it.

Hello,
Guess what, your not the only one who digs the coconut lamp. I have seen a couple over many years they are rare. Kind of Kitch Folk Art. They remind me of the palm frond tables which were made in Florida. Do you have any history on these?
Regards, TT

I do not know much about these. Someone once told me they were sold as souvenirs long ago? I would love to see one of those tables.

Found this picture frame at the 20th century cincinnati show of modern design. I paid only $35.00 bucks. Dose anyone know the girls in this photo? This was taken at the mondo tiki event in las vegas.

I love this topic and tikiskip what a super frame! It seems I remember reading that these gals might have dampened some of the fun for a few folks who attended the event.
Be warned you "might" feel the need to shower after reading this thread....snicker...snicker...

I knew that looked familiar... I finally figured out from where. It's very similar to a picture I saw at my friend Peter Griffin's house.
