Noted as design for totem pole (1910)

Reese is enamored with Native American designs, so I was wondering how long before I found one in his work.

Mahalo OrGotRum.

I think it's marvelous that there is still stuff to be discovered. I (like you) own all the books. Hell, I even wrote one myself.

I was skeptical when I ran into this, but suppose it defied discovery due to the name of the place.

Any how, this is a challenge to all Tiki-centric... Photographs? Plates? Does someone somewhere own one of those marvelous chairs? Got stories? The persons who read this would enjoy your input!

Aloha,

Phillip
