Well this one would not hold a baby, let alone a woman having a baby.
It was wobbly.

Forget what he wanted for it as we did not want it.

The ships wheel was cool but that was high dollar.
Most of them are anymore.

Picked up the following piece at a local flea today for the princely sum of $25. It appears to have the Witco Nature, but I don't recall seeing it here on TC before and it has no Witco markings:

Kinda cool but I don't think it's a Witco. In my dealings with Witco they almost always have the same size plain wood frames.

I found an identical piece on eBay a little while ago. It's listed as Witco, and it appears to have exactly the same frame/coloring as mine. The seller's offering no proof that it's genuine though, and there's no catalog number or tag visible in the photos, so in the absence of any solid evidence to the contrary, I'd tend to agree with you. Whatever it is, I think it's a nice piece of mid-century modern decor.

We surely hung it on ours...

I was also amused to see that the eBay seller was asking $950 for it. It's a nice piece, but that's just ridiculous. In discussions with various antique dealers in my area, I've learned that Witco (or Witco-esque) pieces are becoming highly sought after by Japanese collectors, so the seller was probably hoping for a quick cash-in.

I found this little fella in a Maui consignment store today. He's about 16 inches tall. Paid twenty eight bucks. I wasn't sure if he's a Witco but thought I'd take a chance. At the very least he's Witco-adjacent. I'm not really a Witco fan or collector so I'm not sure what to do with the darn thing.



For now he can just watch TV.

Scored this 4 foot Big Kahuna at a auction, don't quite know if it fits the rest of the room yet but going to let him hang awhile.
