  • About Frank Otremba (Hawaiian Furniture And Hawaii's Cabinetmakers by Irving Jenkins):"Frank Nicholas Otremba, the last of the highly trained German craftsmen to come to Hawaii, was born in Rauden, Germany, in 1851, but was trained as a woodcarver in Italy. He arrived in Honolulu in 1882 in pursuit of his sweetheart, who was vacationing from Germany. In 1883, they were married in Kawaiahao Church and settled in the town. Otremba found work space at George Lucas' mill and, in 1886, opened his own shop, which was given much attention to the press:'A Carver's Establishment: The workshop of Mr. F.N. Otremba, carver on Fort Street, is well worth a visit. It is filled with various articles carved and turned out of native woods, besides plaster work. He has just completed a bronze plaster bust of His Majesty the King, which is very faithful piece of work. In the window is a Kamehameha statue, three feet high, carved out of native woods, a plaster bust of the late Queen Emma, several small Kamehameha statues, calabashes, canes, plaster ornaments, etc.; in a glass case Mr. Otremba shows a number of useful articles made out of cocoanuts, besides some finely polished kukui nuts and a snuff box made out of six different woods. There are other curiosities about the place too numerous to mention.'...From about the turn of the century, Otremba designed and carved a great number of koa wall plaques of different shapes, each with a finely carved branch of a fruiting tree attached. The most popular of these were the mango, guava, and breadfruit, of which the guava motif was much copied in later years by other cabinetmakers as displays of test of skill....Otremba was the finest woodcarver in Hawaii and was referred to in the papers as "the genius Otremba." Furniture of his design was included in the Hawaiian exhibit at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle in 1909, and when the Hawaii promotion committee wished to present MArk Twain with a gift in recognition of his articles about Hawaii, Otremba was awarded the commission."
  • Measures 22 5/8" x 2 1/4" x 16" inches. The plaque's depth without the fruit is 3/4".
