WHAT part of the country is it in? it makes a difference on the dealing. if he is in say so.cal he can wait for a local to buy it . now if it is in montana,he may have a long wait, and you can point that out to him. 2 extreme examples.you are right there ready to take it ,cash in hand, no shipping. make the deal.

Thanks for your reply and for your advice on this purchase.

This Witco piece is something that we have been wanting for a long time. We want this purely for the artistic appreciation and almost never buy art for any other reason, such as an eye toward future resale value (we don't picture ourselves ever wanting to sell any of our tiki collection!).

We are currently vacationing on the east coast and will be shipping all our purchases back to the west coast via Greyhound Shipping (slow, but cheap!).

Mahalo,

Curt

Well, it's not a "deal". It's not that overpriced either. At the moment, despite the publication of "Tiki Modern", Witco has not risen in price very much (because most people choose to not spend their money on this kind of "folly"...only some crazies do ). E-bay buyers are scared off by the high shipping cost of these muthas. So it cannot be recommended as an investment that will quickly appreciate. At this point, it is wholly a matter of how much you like this piece personally or not.

O.K., so we went ahead and purchased the wall hanging we asked for advice about here earlier in the thread. Here is a picture of it, along with the new, proud owners:



FYI: We also found another one of these, if anyone is interested. It is located in an antique store in Atlanta, Georgia and was around the same price as we paid for ours. Email us via our profile and we'll give you more details and the exact location.

Also, the antique shop where we found our new Witco also had a Witco tiki bar for sale. Here is a photo of it:



We didn't give the above-piece a complete inspection, but a cursory look showed that there are several gouges, scratches, and other dings on the bar top and on the frontal areas. Nothing terrible and a good wood restorer should be able to smooth out and refinish the ones that we saw.

As with the second wall hanging that we mentioned, interested persons can contact us via our profile email link and we will give you the location of this piece.

Cheers and Much Aloha,

Sailor Curt & Violet Ray,
Seattle, Washington

That's the same bar I have without the stools. I'd really like to have a pair of those but I just can't drive cross country to pick them up.

Tiki David:

We never asked what the price of the bar is, sorry. I also do not know anything about the stools for the bar.

But if you want the contact information for the dealer who has it, you can email me and I'll give it to you. (I don't want to post anything here that might appear to be marketing spam).

The bar is located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Cheers,

Curt

Mfachman, both of those items are Witco. Bill tells me they sold a ton of the carved swords, cool finds.
