Long time no see. Those are some great photos.

Here is the postcard.










And the matchbook.

Article announcing the grand opening of the Kon Tiki in Cincinnati. It was the 7th one in the chain.

I already posted this in Tiki Finds... BUT... there is certainly some potential relevancy for this thread as well...

I think we may have purchased the very same Oceanic Arts War Club visible on the back wall in Dustycajun's postcard image above...

I got this from a guy in Suburban Cincinnati who got it from a friend who had bought it "years ago at an estate sale or something..."

There can't have been THAT many Oceanic Arts war clubs in Cincinnati... this one has two holes drilled in it for mounting, and (from the patina and where the wear is on it) it is definitely old. This guy had had it for a long time, and said his friend had had it for much longer than that (unfortunately, as tends to happen with some of this stuff, the details were pretty fuzzy.)



These were from the listing:





There's probably no way to know with 100% certainty, but having landed an Oceanic Arts piece that hung on the wall in the Cincinnati Kon Tiki back when is a heckuva thing to think about!
