Thanks for the post Kahuna Tiki, I did not see that Beauceware Bowl on Ebay.
Did anybody happen to have save a picture of that auction??

It would be cool to see if it is possibly the one pictured above.

This is the Beauceware mug that I mentioned before:

Hello!

Thanks Dustycajun and TabooDan for your responses.

Dustycajun, I have over 600 swizzle sticks form Québec and I just have the two ones Iv'e presented before from Tahiti bars.

I am looking for other tiki items related to the Tahiti bars.

Céramique de Beauce produced around 10 different tiki objects.

Included in that message, I have the photos fm the bowl on the Marie-Antoinette postcard who was on Ebay and a Beauce Mug from my collection.

BYE

TIKIQUÉBEC

Thanks for the pics of the bowl, now I see how they got the flame coming out of the Volcanoe in the middle for the postcard photo. That is a beauty.

You need to figure out how to include your photos direclty into your posts instead of attaching them as a link. I think Sabu fixed the last ones you posted for the swizzles.

Thanks for the photos TIKIQUEBEC! That bowl is awesome and is not seen too often at all! Beauceware actually made some decent quality ceramics with nice style. Their mugs always have nice lines, good detail and are thick, good quality ceramics.

Do you happen to have a picture of the base of this bowl? It would be interesting to see if they were marked like the other Beauceware items.



Makes you wonder about this restaurant using these items. Did the Marie-Antoinette chain have a direct deal with Beauceware to make these for them specifically? Did Beauceware just have these as a regular selection for places/people to choose from and they were then made? Hhhmmmmmm.......

Hey, Dan, is that the Beauceware Moai that I sent you? That was an amazingly lucky find: a set of four at Goodwill for $20!

I kept one for myself and traded the other 3. Would love to find one of those bowls, but I'll never be able to bid that kind of money on ebay!

Yeh, that's the one Brandomoai. I think it is the first one on the left in your picture of four. A great find to get all four!
These are great mugs and the glazes really make them unique!

Later, TabooDan

ALOHA TabooDan!

Sorry, I am late!

Céramique de Beauce produced this bowl exclusively for Marie-Antoinette. Céramique de Beauce worked like that.





NOTE: I AM COLLECTING TIKI ITEMS RELATED TO QUÉBEC. IF YOU HAVE SOME, SEND ME A MESSAGE.

For what it's worth, here's a different version of the Moai mug from Céramique de Beauce. Never knew they existed until I stumbled upon 'em one day...

While I'm at it, here are 2 typical sort of mugs from the awesome Coconut bar/Motel in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.

What does makes them unusual is the fact that they've been customized on the bottom.

Pics are a little blurry, but the black one, embossed, says: "COCONUT BAR T-R-Q".
The Blue one, stamped, says: "Coconut Bar 3-RIV,O,QUE"
There you have it!

A souvenir photo folder from the Hawaiian Room - a pre-tiki South Seas bar, upstairs at the Tic Toc Cafe in Montreal.

Wow, what a great shot! The styling of those dames! A good find inside an unassuming exterior.

I found some images of matchbooks from a few other Canadian Tiki places while perusing the internet.

The Hale Kai at the Brant Inn in Burlington, Ontario.



Jali Tiki in Joliette, Quebec.



Bar Oona Onna at the Golden Palace restaurant in Repentigny, Quebec.



And the Mai Tai Restaurant and Polynesian Lounge in Longueuil, Quebec.


(I like the use of the palm tree in the name)

Anybody heard of these ones before?

I picked up this postcard a while back from the Waikiki Restaurant that was located in Comox on Vancouver Island.



Nice neon.



Could not find out much else. Maybe some of the TCers up that way can do a little digging.
