I have for sale a set of half moon club chairs and a super rare double horseshoe
design arm loveseat.Both are finished with the same bark cloth but arms are different.
Would look great together in the same room are split up.The chairs and loveseat went
thru a six step extensive restoration process.When I picked them up they had been
sitting outside for who knows how long.They were covered in black mold from HELL !
and I didn't know if they could be saved at all?
I spent countless hours prepping bleaching,wire brushed, sanded,stained and
eventually varnished.The rattan was all shot in a down draft state the art spray
booth with Zspar yacht varnish @ $35 a quart.You do the math.

The bark cloth was done in the top of the line Trend Tex fabric from Honolulu, and
top of the line HR memory foam.No expense was spared to complete this restoration.
As you can see the end result is simply stated incredible.The varnish came out like
glass-flawless.Most people have no idea just how much work is involved with doing
restoration on vintage rattan furniture.Thats why most people question the prices
some of it sells for because they are clueless about the labor intensive work involved.
Again I say most- not all people.My pictures don't even come close to doing this
rare set justice .
Emails welcome.Available by appointment only.
Serious inquires only -please
Mahalo,
Trader Bill

For those that collect vintage Tiki mugs, this is known as the rare
and sought after Luau 400 tiki mug- with cold paint on the the front
done in kinda purple and orange.The shape is called a fogcutter and
is mfg. by OMC.This mug is featured on page 40 of Tiki Quest.
This pic shows the back of the mug.I forget where the Luau 400 was
located.Detroit? I am sure one of our fellow tikiphiles knows.

I looked it up.The LUAU 400 was located at 400 57th St.in
New York city- thus the name LUAU 400.If anyone out there
has a spare LUAU 400 matchbook they can part with ,I would
be stoked for my tiki matchbook collection.
Shown on page 128 in Tiki Quest.
