On Tuesday, November 19th 2013 8pm Columbus on line auctions held an auction of Kahiki items.
There were about 108 different things in this auction stuff like chairs, tiki,and one light ect...
The grand total from this sale was $41,359.41 AND Add a 10% buyers premium on top of that!
Fee to seller was 25%.
I got many calls about this auction and knew that...
A. stuff would sell for high dollar,and
B. I would not be bidding.
Some of these items I did not know where they came from.
But some of the mystery came to light when I went to see Soung from the Kahiki as he filled me in
on a few questions I had.
The first mystery was what's up with the brass horse?(There was a 4 foot brass horse in the sale)
It sold for $1650,00 Soung said it was in Michael Tsao's office you see mr Tsao was born in the year of the
Horse,(Chinese Zodiac Animal) I have heard Mr. Tsao say he was a "maverick" before.
This is the only item the person who won this horse got from this auction. (I would hope this went to one of his two sons)
So this may answer that mystery.

More to come....

Here is the description of said item from sale trying to find photo....
"Vintage bronze-over brass, Large Rearing Horse Sculpture. Removed from the original Kahiki many years ago. Rubbing the ear or the legs of the horse was thought to bring good luck to the guest. Part of the magical mystery that the founders of the Kahiki instilled at its inception. A beautiful patina has settled on this vintage piece. You can feel the energy as you as you wonder at the many hands, both famous delegates and stars as well as countless local residences alike. Our research shows this to be similar to other such castings that are reportedly "from the Japanese Meiji Period." "
Best photo I have for now.

So next up is this "Chinese Elder Sculpture with Child" What the heck is this?
This thing was 52 1/2 inches tall and had a "Gold tone finish"

So I ask Soung and he gave me that you dumb a$$ you don't know where that was look, a look I
get to see from him all too often.
And he tells me it was on TOP OF THE BAR! Man if that old Chinese Elder guy could talk.
How did I miss that? heck it was right in front of me all those years. (it was up high though)
This sculpture sold for $600.00 not bad for where it sat really.
The buyer also got a Entry table that was more of a Chinese looking item.
Would guess that these items went to a Chinese restaurant maybe? who knows.
By themselves they were not tiki.

Here is the description of said item from sale trying to find photo....
Antique carved-wood 'Chinese Elder sculpture with Child' holding a Chinese bat. In Ancient Chinese society, a bat was a symbol of Happiness and Longevity - this hand carved sculpture is big, over 4ft tall! All wood with painted and applied gesso (like the picture frames from the 1920's) and then gilded with a gold tone finish.
Best photo I have for now.

We heard that a cowboy from Wyoming bought the horse. I guess it reminds him of his rodeo days. And the Chinese carving,probably didn't notice it because it wasn't Tiki.

"We heard that a cowboy from Wyoming bought the horse."
How would he get it home?

I think that it's good when items from the Kahiki go out of state really, this way
when people in Wyoming or wherever the stuff goes the buyer will say
"This is from the Kahiki" there is a far greater chance that the people that see
said item will not know about the Kahiki or even tiki for that matter and hear the tale
of the Kahiki thus spreading the word.

This is not a popular view here and I can see that point somewhat.
But if you have a view point of what would promote Kahiki/tiki far and wide wins.
This is what I would want to happen to stuff from my restaurant.
Heck we are really just caretakers of this stuff anyway.

I sent one of the Kahiki velvets to PARIS! Now that's cool.

Thanks Umeone for your input.

Ha! Tiki shampoo?

Here is a look at part of the auction.
Saw a few people there but was surprised at the low turn out for the viewing, we
stayed for about two hours out of the three hour viewing.
It was nice to talk tiki to all who were there.

Met up with these old time Kahiki folks on the 24th at one wild party!(Soung, Tikiskip, Theang)
The last photo is of the guy who made this Kahiki fireplace repo.
(I only know him as the Violin guy he makes Violins too)
He has since told me he is going to build a bigger one that has four sides each with a different face.
This should be done in a year or so, time will tell.
