Would anyone have any information to share about this lamp? I picked it up in NY years ago and can't seem to find any info on it. It looks to be brass and has a red nite-lite type of bulb in the center of the pineapple and a Maori figurine on top. Thanks.

Very cool! That Tiki was used by several classic Tiki temple chains, Trader Vic's, Kona Kai, and others, but I cannot pinpoint that lamp design. C'mon archaeologists, pull out your magnifying glasses and scour the table tops in your postcard collections!
