Hey John-

I recognize that sun-beaten Witco fountain... I think you & I were looking at the same for sale post!

We had the car all gassed up and ready to go... but alas *sniff* someone came and picked it up before we could get there.

If you ever find that two Witco fountains is just two much to bear... let's say I know a guy that'll take the crummy one off yr hands...

--Pete

Been waiting a few months to finally get this.

As purchased:



After two orange Pledge sessions:




Mom and Dad now have a tiki in living room!


So, I know this is on pg 247 of Tiki Modern on the Malihini menu.
Does this piece have a name, and roughly, what years was it being produced?

Thanks

Well, it's not MY Witco, rather it appears to belong to Anakin Skywalker.

This weekend we celebrated our son's birthday and he's a certifiable Star Wars nut, so it was nice for him that the 3D release of Episode 1 opened on Friday and he got to see it on the first night. It was on the big screen and in three dimensions that I noticed that Anakin was leaving behind his Witco kid when he packed his backpack and took off to become a jedi:





And from Sven's "Tiki Modern":




There was an amusing assortment of other stuff used to dress the sets that was barely disguised (plastic crap from the thrift store spray-painted silver or brown) but that discussion probably belongs on Star Wars Central or whatever forum they have.

Came across the quintessential bar at an estate sale outside of Pittsburgh, and was knocked speechless.
There was nearly a bidding war, one bid was in, I was second, and two couples were kicking the tires as I scrambled.
Something else will have to leave the Boom Boom Room for it to fit, but that's a small sacrifice
In situ:


While cleaning:

I plan on waxing it to get it to the shade of the wet one on the left.

WOW that thing is amazing. That's one of the late-period 70s bars, right? Original cushions too. Incredible find, congrats!

Could we have a peek of the side tikis? They look almost like kava kavas to me...

Kava Kava men, good call! The photo from the 1976 catalog in Tiki Mod is so dark you can't see it. Yes, please shoot some different angles of those bad boys.
