Does anyone know the actual name of this piece as it appeared in the catalog?
Full disclosure, I plan on selling it.

Thanks

I got this wall clock for Xmas. We'd seen it months ago tucked away in a big antique mall/movie prop house. We've seen several other Witco pieces there. This "feels" right, the color, wood paint, all seem to be legit. Though no sticker or anything. Is this Witco? The only other one that shows up on the web lists this as a rare Witco but on closer examination it's actually the exact same piece, the carving and woodgrain match exactly. so can't find any other reference on this.

Maybe with some more detail pictures someone may able to say for sure. In my view the grain of the wood doesn't look right for a Witco piece but I am not an expert. Cool clock though that would look great on the wall.

I was able to obtain the big guy posted at the top of the page. He was really dried out so I gave him a dose of Howard's wood treatment. He is going to find a good home in the HUKILAU LOUNGE.

So after a good cleaning and some Feed-n-Wax, this clock really perked up a lot. I don't think the works are original, they're those old plastic box workings where you pop in a battery. There's just a big wide round hole drilled in the back that they sit in. But here's a much better look at it. It still kinda feels right, but can't find any independent confirmation. The "Hour" dots are like little brass upholstery tacks. It keeps horrible time.






Thanks

This pair I bought for $20 at an antique shop. No markings on them. Witco perhaps?

I found this at a thrift store last weekend. I've never seen one like it before.



Anybody ever see one of these?
Looks dangerous. Thinking of adding an LED candle.

Interesting find Spaceboy. Cool name you got too.
Looks Witco to me but I’m no expert. I wouldn’t alter it in anyway. If you are concerned about an open flame a hurricane lamp chimney is fairly easy to find and would not do any damage to your find.
Cheers
