Item Description

Part of a larger "Luau Dinner/Poi Supper" set.
This is a set of 11 (4"long & 2" high) unusual Hawaiian luau coconut goblets. They are unusual because of their not-often-seen pear-shape. Although they were part of a larger "Luau Dinner" set (see other Hawaiian Koa bowls and coconut cups in this auction) they also have a myriad other uses as separates, like talk-of-the-town kava cups. These large party sets were popular in the 1930s/1940s and these goblets are not the "cheapie" ones stuck together with glue that tourist traps sell nowadays. Collect the whole "Luau Dinner" set for your next big party or just bid on one item as a separate.
