Sort of looks like they're all waiting in line at the bathroom after scarfing down the Nachos Bellgrande.

Wow! $9 of wiggle room on a grand. I think he would have saved $9 if he just had a buy-it-now.

Too bad he doesn't know what restaurant they came from. Something that big should be pretty emorable.

Anyone recognize what restaurant they are from???

Nice pieces (with the exception of the one that resembles a Planet 51 refugee).

Since the two giant Trader Vics salt and pepper shaker shaped guys actually say "Trader Vics" on their backs, does anyone think it's possible that they came from an actual TV?

They came from no restaurant. They are new carvings. I have seen them come up on Ebay regularly for years. Various designs, but the same wood, same "style."

Don't let it get to you...
If you like them, that's all that matters.
If you bought them for investment purposes, then lesson learned.
Either way, make them look great in your place!

In profile like that, they look kinda overweight. I'd go with Swanky, and recommend a chainsaw diet. Make 'em shed some bodyfat.
