Here is the last of our ALOHA, OA! Exhibition mugs celebrating OCEANIC ARTS: The Godfathers of TIKI. This mug is the much anticipated GOLD COLORWAY of our DON the BEACHCOMBER POST Mug.
The mug is absolutely dazzling with a thick metalized gold glaze that looks like something that Indiana Jones would want to pilfer from a booby-trapped forbidden tomb! This release is limited to 100 units. These are pre-boxed and will ship individually. Price is $125 plus shipping.
Contact orders@peekaboogallery for international shipments.
We are very proud these mugs and they are a great way to commemorate the much loved ALOHA, OA! farewell events held last year.
MORE ABOUT THE SERIES:
This impressive chalice, “THE CANNIBAL” is based on an original Tiki post carving by LeRoy Schmaltz created for the famous Don the Beachcomber restaurant at The Sahara Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This Beachcomber location featured some of the most elaborate and wide-ranging décor of any in the company’s chain across the globe. A series of eight entrance posts were fabricated by Oceanic Arts for placement at the interior of the venue. Each of these tall entrance tikis were unique and represented an amalgamation of Polynesian tribal styles. Upon the closing of the Las Vegas restaurant in the 1970s, the company sold a good deal of its décor back to Oceanic Arts. Over the years, OA sold or repurposed much of this décor into their Luau Rental Department.
The mug was designed by Peekaboo Gallery owner and author of OCEANIC ARTS: The Godfathers of TIKI, JORDAN REICHEK. The design is a representation of the Don the Beachcomber, “Cannibal Post” carving and it features a base that pays homage to OA’s famous rope-wrapped brass tiki table lamp shades. This mug is MASSIVE, measuring 9” tall and 5” wide at the base, holding approximately 18oz of liquid gold! It comes in a special commemorative OA box.
