Just picked up this older looking tiki necklace in a group of 60's era Boy Scout items. Just thought it was some sort of camp handicraft type deal till I noticed the artist / makers mark on the back. Carved wood, glass eyes, leather neck thong, about 2 inches tall. Anybody ever seen one before?

Welcome to TC!

Here is what I thought it was (Letter D in the ad and the painted one on the left in photo below), but as we discussed earlier, these are usually metal:





I don't know if your's is a forebear or if someone copied the design but I see a lot of similarities.

Hey Tom! I figured you were on here. You know me, I love a mystery, and the research involved. It was such an interesting little item I thought I'd post a couple pics and see if anybody knew anything. I found one with the same mark on eBay, different design, but they didn't know anything about the maker either.

Hawaiian company named PolyArt made one just like it back in the 60-70's.

Here's the lava version
