Savage Sissy found this today at a junk shop, looks like witco and can see some resemblance to other parts of the cuts but not sure what it was? has a few nail holes in the back an a hook to hang it on now. Any ideas?

Cool piece Bood. I'm sure someone out there can pin it down as to if it's a Witco or not. Sounds like if it is a Witco it may have been attached to a larger piece.

Today...









The sail and boat are different than the others I have seen posted...





Is mine considered an "outrigger"? How many different styles were there?

Thanks,

PTD

I suppose you are correct, however the sails are what threw me?? Also, the bow isn't as pronounced as the viking ships I have seen.

Anyone else?

I would agree with Tiki David. The sheilds on the side are what give it away as a viking vessel. Plus with all the witco Tiki David has I would go with his instinct......great find!

Hi Coco Joe,

That an awesome set. Did you re-frame that or is the the original framing?

Aloha my fellow TC. I actually bought these on ebay from some person in Florida. I'm assuming by the worn on the frame (yet still very clean) it's original. Thanks for saying they look nice!

PS..FedEx just delivered a tiki farm mug at frikin 11pm. I didn't know FedEx even worked that late!

Here's some of my witco......


My wife found this one for me at the columbus flea market, one of my favorites!

I got these stools from a weirdo in south jersey....parts of southern new jersey are very strange! I think it might be the water.......

This beauty was a gift from a friend after I dreaded his hair back in the day...

I have two of these masks that I got from ebay, one is on the front of my homemade tiki bar/computer stand and one is on my wall in the tiki/playroom....

I got the king from another fleamarket here in Jersey, it looks like witco but I'm actually not positive.....still cool!

and I got this one from craigslist, it was listed as an "african" table....I often find vendors at the flea markets confusing polynesian carvings with those made in africa and elsewhere.

In these parts Witco is seldom found... but today I found the lion found in TIKI MODERN on page 187. It is without the leopard skin frame back piece. The lion is about four feet long, I'd say. Not tiki enough for me, so I didn't buy it. But if it interests one of you, the shop is:

Iron Lace Antiques, 269-641-2171,
jermarie23@aol.com The shop is on the Michigan/Indiana line.

Oh, and he currently has $40 on it. And if you want me to purchase it for you, pm me.
