Hello,

My name is Jefferson. I have a tiki mask that my Great Uncle got in WWII. I don't know much about the origin of the mask or it's value. I have searched, but do not find any like it.

It was given to me as a gift several years ago and I am very proud to have it on my wall. Can anyone give me an idea of what I have? Any information would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you very much!

This does not look like it has the age or patina of an item from WWII era.
Don't really want to call it a Tiki, more of a Kitsch wall art thing.

Hope this helps, I can see you are really into tiki by the sign to the left of the wall thing.
Welcome to TC.

The patina is not right because the mask was in my Great Uncle's house when another room caught fire. When I inherited this piece, I cleaned off the smoke damage and put floor wax on the mask to protect the wood.

The mask was taken as a "war trophy" in WWII by my Great Uncle in the South Pacific...that's the family story. I have found similar masks from the Philippines, but none exactly like this one.

And...thank you for the welcome.

Hello All, my name is Chris, but Im not even sure my parents know my birth name anymore, so Diggs or Diggler is easier to remember. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and glad I came across the site.. I am in the process of rebuilding my tiki bar on the Jersey Coast (real Jersey Shore, not that imported NY crap!) and thought I would get some inspiration. AMAZING artists and dedicated enthusiasts here, great to see!! Ill poke around a bit and Im sure I'll be reaching out to a few people. Thanks for making my day! Cheers!

Welcome to the group Diggler. Please remember to post pics of your rebuild because we love that kind of thing around here.

Hey, My name is Susan I am a student studying at UC Berkeley. I am taking a archaeology course and our focus is discarded ceramics from TEPCO. My assemblage consists of tiki artifacts primarily manufactured for trader vic's.
I've been able to identify most of my artifacts but i'm having some trouble with one of them.
It's not the regal or imperial vase from page 59 of the TEPCO catalog so it really has me stumped.
Think Ya'll can help?






Thanks A Ton!
-Susan (:

Diggler,

Always nice to see another from NJ around these parts. Welcome!

I'm in Monroe Township, Middlesex County. Where are you at?

Aloha all! My name is Jerry (hence the handle) -- a new Tiki Central member. We recently moved to the Columbia, SC, area, and I'm trying to find if there's a local group of tikiphiles who gather occasionally at a restaurant or bar somewhere in the middle of the state. (There's a great group like this in the Washington, DC area, where we used to live.) Any tiki socializing happening in the midlands of SC?

Jerry, welcome aboard. Welcome to South Carolina (land of no tiki) and Tiki Central (Tiki Nirvana). I honestly don't know of anyone or group that does a gathering in our state. There is not a lot of tiki to be found in these parts and if you do find something it is usually covered with parrots and tied to Jimmy Buffett or Kenny Chesney...at least that has been my luck. I had luck finding the occasional mug in a flea market, but almost everything I have in my collection has come from ebay or fellow collectors.

Thanks, Dale. On Critiki it looks like the interesting tiki places are several hours from us -- Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Greenville, and of course Trader Vic's in Atlanta. We are actually closer to Camden than to Columbia. I'd settle for a good Chinese restaurant with a good tropical drink menu. Or a restaurant that is EITHER a good Chinese restaurant or one with a good tropical drink menu!

Any other folks on this board in the Columbia-Rock Hill vicinity or adjoining rural areas?
