I posted this earlier in the year in the Tiki Finds thread, but thought I'd post it here too because I still have no clue what the little pink guy is about! My mom found for me it in an antique shop on the west coast of Florida. He has no markings on the bottom, but you can tell that it's old by the wear on the underside. Not sure if he's a toothpick holder/shot glass? I've tried looking up I don't know how many combos of pink/tiki/shot/toothpick/etc.. to no avail. His face looks super similar to the one on the Trader Vic's shaker next to him, but that's the only thing I've been able to deduce.

Recently came across this slit drum. Pretty sure the orgin is Hawaii, but I am not sure of the markings or the words carved into this. Anyone??







Mahalo,

PTD

If you get it home and find it doesn't fit on your mug shelf, I'll trade you a whole pile of tiki stuff for it.

Buzzy Out!

Thanks for the offer Buzzy, but I think Ill keep him!

couldn't wait until lunch.. so I just went out and got him, they wouldn't budge on the 90 bucks... so 100 with tax.
Hes actually 43" tall and pretty heavy (ill weigh him l8ter)



Although he looks good on my desk, I think ill take him home to the lounge

I see TC on one of them!
And actually, I can't work without at least 2. I even have a portable one for my laptop so that I can work with two monitors on the go.

I'll trade you the portable one for the tiki! Hahahaha

Is this carving inspired from somewhere in the South Pacific, Africa, or somewhere else? I picked him up off eBay. Thought he looked cool but not sure he's South Pacific.
