1950s Bamboo Drinks Set

R250.00

I wasn’t sure how old this set was when I bought it, but I suspected that it had a bit of age to it despite it being in great nick, and from the bit of research that I’ve done it looks like I was right! Most sites date it to the 1950s and refer to it as Tiki ware – I’m not sure if Tiki refers to the type of construction (it looks like it’s been made out of large pieces of bamboo), or the name of the manufacturer, but it’s definitely Japanese, and definitely vintage, and going on the prices it seems to be fairly collectible – a complete Tiki set can sell for as much as R2000!

Note: I’m away for a week or two, and didn’t get a chance to take measurements before I left, so I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly how big or small these pieces are. My apologies!
