Still going through boxes from my mom's estate and found an old box full of these. Not sure were I'll ever use them cause it is really a mix-matched set, but sure are cool to have.

No, it's a 44 inch long piece of wood. The white pieces are mother of pearl.

It does look like leather in the pics. I think its kind of old due to the cracks in the wood which you can't see in the picture. I paid $30 for it.
The tapa cloth has the Tongan crest on it. Does that mean I should be more careful with its treatment? Like I shouldn't poke holes in it or make it into a lamp? It has something about Queen Salote on it.

On these,they were in great shape to begin with ,first wipe the dust ,then wipe with 'Minwax'special walnut stain to clear all the tiny scratches & scuffs, dry, buff, rub in rejuvenating oil,(teak oil).
then 'armour all' on the vinal.

I have seen the SS Cookie Hut on T C before. It plays the theme from Gilligan island when you open the lid. BTW,it's a cookie jar.The surfer on the wave is also a cookie jar and I've never seen it before. You surf freaks will like this. Open the lid and one of three songs will play: Surfing safari
Sidewalk surfing
and my favorite -Surfing USA.

Cheers

Found another cookie jar today. This one plays the background sound when the great white (Jaws)is on the prowl and soon to eat somebody. Hope I'm not starting another collection.
