TabooDan,
I am glad you like and appreciate vintage velvets.They really are so so COOL.
You cant have velvets in hot dry weather, and no exposure to the sun ever, or
they get ruined.Secondly ,you have to be very careful cleaning them to so you
don't damage them.I find that blue masking tape works well getting minor lint
and dust off of them.

Great collection.
I love velvet paintings. I have the Hina Rapa that used to stand at the Kahiki, made by Lavisse.

Even though I didn't sell my Chotai Yonaha on E-Bay, I still decided to go ahead and pick these today...




Painted by Joe Sabala? 1970.




Cant read the signature on this one. This and the first one have matching frames.




Painted by Link, Hawaii.

They need some cleaning and TLC but overall a very good score today!

Here is another painting from my velvet collection , found at one of my favorite flea
markets.Although not a Hawaiian or Polynesian theme ,she is beautiful nude velvet.
I must have seen a hundred people walk right past her sitting next to some
clutter, old antiques and who knows what else, yet no one stopped to look
or comment about her .I was shocked.I casually swooped on over to get a better peek.
Took one gander ,and knew I had to add her to my collection.I worked my magic, went
into negotiation mode and within minutes I was the proud new owner.Bye the way ,
don't we all have that one flea market you tend to like the best or you have had the best
luck with over others -this was one of those type of places.My pic doesn't do her justice .
Hope you like and approve of her!

Since both these threads got bumped recently, I thought I'd point out an observation 'uncle trav' made:
Compare 'uncle trav's' velvet painting, from page 1 of this thread, with the painting in the Bora Bora Lounge of the Volcano Restaurant (circa 1968, page 7 of
this very interesting thread).

Looks to be similar to a painting above the bar of the Volcano posted over on the General Tiki thread...
Heres one with the lights up to show more of the colors

"Similar"? Apparently a popular painting, at one time. Heck, wish I had one, too!

Here is a nice piece I found at a yard sale this summer. I guess you can't call it a nude, she is wearing stockings. LOL

There's some cool stuff here. The two velvets I have are so crummy that I cut one up to test the fabrics' fade resistance!

I know this thread is for collecting velvets, but does anyone know where I can find the type of very short nap velvet these old artists used?

Or the super-cool Mexican frames! Is anyone still making this stuff?

Thanks for any help offered - TCers are the greatest source of knowledge I've ever seen.
