An image for the record. Probably was KC. I sent the auction to him when I saw it.
Bowls were unmarked.

weird thing about that auction, it was up for a few days with a starting bid of about $45.... next thing i know the starting bid is bumped to $100. did someone whisper in the seller's ear ? too bad they didn't list them one at a time over a few month period.... they might have gotten $271 each !! listing it as polynesian village would have helped too. it pays to know the items history. fortunately, not many sellers always know.

Ren Clark had his own one-off bourbon whiskey made by the Graham Distillery Company in 1936 and bottled in 1944.

This article has some more interesting history about him.

Cool find. One of the greater Tiki mysteries, the Ren Clark story...

Found this Polynesian Village rarity recently at flea market near Fort Worth and was thrilled to add it to my collection. Not sure I've seen it on any of the forums as of yet. I'd love to talk with any DFW area historians about the place. I've accumulated a pretty sizable collection of artifacts, history and photographs of the old Western Hills hotel and was excited to hear about some potential publishing projects. Look forward to talking more soon.

Very nice find. Was it made by Sterling China by any chance? It would be great if you could add the photo to this thread and welcome to TC.
