Bigbro,

A postcard? Never seen that one.

Here is one of my all time favorite paper items from UA - that great menu cover that was featured in a two-page spread in the Book of Tiki. This one was posted by TikiThomas. I have been looking for one of these for years.



Here is another UA to Hawaii ad, this one has got that groovy 70s vibe goin on.

PTD,

Nice coin, always fun to find a Poly Pop Numismatic item. I have seen them from Aku Aku and Don the Beachcomber - any others?

Here is the Hawaiian Open decanter from the 1972 for the 25th anniversary of UA flying to Hawaii.

Great thread. I know there is a lot more known items to ad to this thread and I wonder if there is still some United Airlines stuff out there waiting to be discovered?

Here's a couple Hawaiian Open, United Airlines, Suntory Royal decanters. 1986 and 1982 and some advertisement pics for them I found on the internet.





They made a lot of decanters. I like the ones of tikis the most.

These things always seem to go for a bundle on ebay.

On a side note: And WHICH famous Tiki revival image was inspired by the above Tiki?

That's right folks, the influential Capitol Martin Denny cover by Mark Ryden:



And while I am at it, here the origin of the other two elements in that art work, taken straight from a BOT mock up I had given to the artist in the mid-90s:



The A-frame from the recently mentioned Kona Kai/Hale Tiki rendering, and this 1992 photo I snapped at the Tropics Motel in Palm Springs:



And now back to our scheduled United Airlines flight, there are more travel agency display Tikis to be posted!

Alien Tiki,

Great decanters and matching ads. That's a nice combo to have.

Here is the little 6.5" United Airlines Tiki that was posted on Marketplace a few weeks ago. Never seen one of these until then.
