A friend of a friend is selling them. They look very old. He told me they came out of backyard here in Vegas, but it seems like I've seen them somewhere before?

They are definitely old. Though I like the patina, I don't like the paint job that was applied to them later. Thing is, if you strip the paint, you destroy the patina, and then what's left? Personally, I do not find them original and well designed enough to mess with that.

Yeah, that's more like it. In a dark corner of your home hideaway, with not too much light on them, they might work. (Maybe with a nice descriptive museum-style plaque on them describing that they are old, but fell victim to the late Tiki Devolution custom of garish colorization)

Man, I'd be really tempted to strip that paint off and give them a nice, protective, flat varnish. I think they'd look 1,000X better. Yeah, the paint is old and all, but they look like aged carrousel horses, which they clearly are NOT.

$.02

I agree, I'd soda blast them and re-stain, for $200 they would be a steal.

There pretty dam cool.. what about 40-50 yr old maybe...? I think if can, can... If not you might wish you did..
Not sure if I'd strip them or leave them as is...
Although I'm one of those that loves the Steve Crane clown mug...

Put me in the catagory to leave these crude but still way cool pieces as they are or have skilled/minimal cleaning/touch-up/preservation applied. To remove anything is to start removing their history and who knows what tales they could tell as is?

Nice find, don't waste it.
