Bumper Crop of Kahiki Idol’s Casts

Kahiki Idol’s Cast, for sale on eBay

Right now, there are three — three! — Kahiki Idol’s Cast bowls up for sale on eBay. This is generally regarded as one of the more rare mugs, and has been some people’s “holy grail” … there are only four in Ooga-Mooga — three have a straight-lined design like the ones currently available on eBay, and there is also a wavy-lined version. It was created by Hoffman Pottery for the famous Kahiki Supper Club in Columbus, Ohio. They only very rarely have come up for sale in the past, and have gone for hundreds and hundreds of dollars. According to Ooga-Mooga, one went for $560 a couple of weeks ago; perhaps that is what sparked the current flood. Even though these are very rare, having three up at once means that they’re likely to go for much less money than they have in the past. Good luck and happy bidding to those who have always wanted one of these! (Thanks to Sven Kirsten for the heads-up, via Tiki Central.)

  1. Thank you for linking to my Idol’s cast on eBay, and yes, it is ok that you used my photo for your website. Mine is the one that refers to it as a vase. Please feel free to post a link to my next Kahiki find…a lidded coconut! I don’t know much about it, but I think that it is another rarity.
    Best Regards,
