Stopped by, ever hopeful that I might finally acquire a Tyree. This was listed in the catalog (in Oakland, CA) for and expected sale price of $500-700. It went for $2,750 hammer price, with buyer premiums and sales tax that is over $3,500. Oh well!

Just thought some of you would be interested.

NOT REALLY INTERESTED! Does not have anything to do with TIKI! Wrong area to post! Put in BILGE!

I'd disagree but posting a pic would be a great idea.

I would have to agree.

It's quite lovely.
And now I've got another name to lookout for on ebay.

Since this post was about an item that had already sold and was never meant to facilitate a sale, I've moved this to Collecting Tiki.

But Bilge? I don't think so ....

Tyree is definitely tiki and it should be under collecting but maybe in the velvet painting thread...

It is a beautiful work...Thanks for posting...

You should look before you blow up on someone.

This is completely Tiki. Just because it has Mercedes in the headline doesn't mean it was for a car. It was for a beautiful velvet painting of a woman named Mercedes. It's 100% legit.

This is one of my main problems with TC is how quickly people lambast others. I wish it was more chill around here, I know I keep wishing and in the 8+ years here on the site, it keeps happening...

Ahh, that's a nice one... misunderstanding with the whole "not tiki" thing?

Everybody relax.

There have been a lot of posts by bots around the site lately.

And this could easily be mistaken for a bot.

Sit back, have a mai tai, and enjoy the lovely velvet. No more fucking this, or fucking that.

Kuu aku.

PS Mercedes is a very nice velvet, I can see why you wanted it.
Thanx for posting.

It's not velvet, but it sure is nice!
