David, How many Witco Worlds have you found over the years? more than a couple, I think!

Hi!
I recently found this at a salvage store. I found some sites about Witco and was informed that it is in fact Witco called golden cloud and was carved around 1968. I don't really know about this type of art and cannot find anything really like it. The other ship carvings that were made seem to be mounted on a fabric background. Does anyone know how much something like this is worth? I've seen Witco for $100-$1000...Thanks!!!

It's worth between $100 - $1000

AT least you have done some research - Good luck selling it on Ebay!

Are you guys seriously being mean? I didn't realize the underground Tiki world was so much cooler than me. I have researched a ton and as I said this is the only one like this I have found. Ken Pleasant was kind enough to try to find it for me in his archives and found out what I know thus far. I'm not trying to sell it, it's part of my home and there's a very sentimental story behind it. It was a simple innocent question. Good luck with your karma.

And we gave you the answer you were looking for

Value - is only based on what someone will pay which would be anywhere between $100-$1000. Simple and you already had the right idea about a dollar amount

Ebay - is where everyone here that asks for value of a piece goes after we tell them what something is worth

This thread - is for showing Witco and you stuck your photo where it belonged on the forum

Research - looked like you already did it

Relax....no one was "being mean" everyone answered your question(s)

Good luck keeping or selling it in the future. The.End.

That's really cool; I would not have even pegged it as a Witco.

Never seen that 'relief sculpture' style in the ships before. Definitely rare, I'd say.
