1940's Vintage Cohama Hawaiian Shirt Rayon M-lg Surfers Hula For Sale
1940?s Vintage Cohama Hawaiian Shirt Rayon M-Lg Surfers Hula
This pieceis relistedfor the reason described below. This shirt came from the estate of a family friend who served in Hawaii as a Naval Reserve officer in the mid-1940’s, and was purchased in Hawaii. The label states only “Authentic Cohama Hawaiian Print”. The short sleve shirt appears to be rayon, or possibly a rayon-silk blend, screen printed after assembly with surfers, hula dancers, and other Hawaiian scenes (sleves and back are plain). It is in excellent, virtually unused condition. I would judge the size med-large based on other Hawaiian shirts I own. The dimensions, flat, are: Shoulder to shoulder – 18”, arm pit to arm pit – 24”, top of collar to tail – 31”. Please check against your own shirts; no returns for size. $5.00 S&H
There is an area at the hula girlin the center/front which is somewhat lighter than the rest of the print. This is in the making - it's just a bit light. I did not notice it originally. I also found a very small spot on the left sleeve. I don't know if it can be washed out. It is hardly noticeable. I have included close-up pics.
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ASKING FOR TOTAL PRICE; I will send you an invoice through ASAP after the sale ends. US shipping is usually stated in the description - you can pay right away using 's "Pay Now" button. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars. Contact me about alternate payment methods and international shipping.
I try to end weekday sales late enough that my left-coast friends can get home from work and still offer. That means it's late here, so I may not contact you until the next day. Thank you for your patience.
Unless otherwise specified, shipping is by U.S.P.S. The rate quoted in the listing is for shipping within the "lower 48" United States only and includes insurance. I will quote on international S&H. THE RATE QUOTED IN THE "DESCRIPTION" TEXT SUPERCEDES ANY OTHER RATES GENERATED BY 'S PRE-FORMATTED LISTING PAGES.
To cover incidental expences I add approximately $1 to the actual costs of shipment. For very heavy packages I may quote the rate from ZIP Code 17601 to the highest West Coast address. If you are closer to Lancaster, Pa., and pay immediately, I will refund excess shipping after I mail the package and know the exact charge. In no event will shipping within the lower 48 be higher than the rate stated in the listing.
INTERNATIONAL buyers: Due to recent increases in USPS costs the price of international shipping has increased dramatically. Except for very small and light items the cost of international shipping is AT LEAST $12.00. I regularly ship overseas and have had only one item lost or damaged in international mail in fifteen years; however, since there is no practical way to recover the value of lost or damaged packages shipped internationally, I will not be responsible for items lost or damaged, or delayed by your customs service. Please offer accordingly. NOTICES IN THE ITEM DESCRIPTION TEXT such as "US Sales Only" or "Ships to US Addresses Only" supercede any statement elsewhere in the listing regarding international shipping.
